At this year’s Cannes Film festival, Keith Allen will be screening his new documentary about the death of Diana, Princess Of Wales, entitled “Unlawful Killing”.
Allen has worked on “Unlawful Killing” for four years, interviewing people who knew his subject well: the late Tony Curtis, Howard Stern, Kitty Kelley, Mohamed Al Fayed, Piers Morgan and Michael Mansfield QC.
Allen explains the driving force behind his wanting to produce this controversial film: “As far back as 2004, I had been intrigued by Mohamed Al Fayed’s unrelenting determination to seek answers to the questions surrounding the death of his son, Dodi and Princess Diana.”
The documentary alleges that certain forces within the British establishment worked to cover up the true details of Diana’s death in 1997. Allen made it his goal to expose these details and get to the truth.
Because the movie will show a photograph of the dying princess taken by paparazzi moments after her car crashed in a Paris tunnel, its debut is set to cause outrage across the world, especially England.
The black-and-white image is reportedly very graphic, it was only shown in a reduced pixilated form when used during the inquest into Diana’s fatal crash. And British audiences won’t be seeing it either, as Allen’s film will not be screened in England owing to extensive cuts imposed by lawyers if Allen chose to show the movie here.
Commenting on his movie, Allen wrote in the Guardian, “Unlawful Killing is not about a conspiracy before the crash, but a provable conspiracy after the crash. A conspiracy organised not by a single scheming arch-fiend, but collectively by the British establishment – judges, lawyers, politicians, police chiefs, secret services, even newspaper editors – all of whom have been appointed to their positions because they are ‘a safe pair of hands’.”
The documentary is due to screen on 13 May at Cannes.
