A controversial new documentary about the death of Princess Diana is set to be shown at Cannes this week.
Unlawful Killing is the work of actor and film-maker Keith Allen who has spent three years collecting information and doing interviews regarding the death of the princess.
The film claims that ‘dark forces’ within the British establishment were at work to prevent the true details of her death being revealed. It’s not just this claim that has ruffled a few feathers but the fact that it will show a photograph of the dying princess taken by the paparazzi moments after the crash.
The image in question is thought to be so graphic that it was pixelated during the inquest into the crash. Due to the inclusion of this image the documentary will never be shown in the UK, as extensive cuts would be enforced.
Speaking about his film Unlawful Killing, Keith Allen, the father of pop star Lily Allen said:
“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’.
“Just as compass needles all point north without being told to, so these people instinctively know what is expected of them when the state’s interests are under threat and they act accordingly, quietly suppressing uncomfortable evidence or undermining the credibility of witnesses whose evidence contradicts the official narrative.”
We’re not too sure how this is going to go down in Cannes but we have to say it does sound pretty interesting and it looks like it may open a can of worms, don’t you think?
