LUX: Cold Case: Hammarskjöld

Wednesday 6 November

16:00 - 18:23 Kijkhuis 1

In 1961, United Nations Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld’s plane mysteriously crashed, killing Hammarskjöld and most of the crew. With the case still unsolved 50-plus years later, Danish journalist, filmmaker, and provocateur Mads Brügger (The Red Chapel, The Ambassador) leads us down an investigative rabbit hole to unearth the truth. He, his Swedish private-investigator sidekick, and a host of co-conspirators tirelessly pursue a winding trail of clues, but they turn up more mysteries than revelations. Eventually, they begin to sniff out something more monumental than anything they’d initially imagined.

The Death of Dick Long
The Death of Dick Long

Dick died last night, and Zeke and Earl don’t want anybody to find out how. That’s too bad though, ’cause news travels fast in small-town Alabama. From the director of Swiss Army Man -- and just as bizarre.

Ode to Nothing
Ode to Nothing

Sonya lives her life in a lonely routine, struggling to keep her family-owned funeral home afloat. One day she finds a body lying at her doorstep, which is the start of a highly unusual friendship. An inscrutable, tender and bitterly comic film about the desire for companionship.

Deerskin
Deerskin

Another absurdist comedy by Quentin Dupieux, in his unique style: Deerskin. Jean Dujardin shows off his comedic ability as the main character, who goes to extreme lengths to make sure he is the only one looking good in his kind of jacket. Filming the results, Dupieux adds metacommentary to discuss the point of film.
