Unlawful Killing is the story of the deaths of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed and their driver Henri Paul.
It reveals a cover-up by the British Establishment culminating in a six month inquest. Keith Allen’s documentary recreates key moments from the inquest and demonstrates how vital evidence of foul play was hidden from public scrutiny, how the Royal Family were exempted from giving evidence and how journalists, particularly those working for the BBC, systematically misreported the events and in particular, the verdict itself.
On May 13 Cannes saw the premiere of Keith Allens documentary „Unlawful Killing“about the tragic death of Lady Diana and her lover Dodi Al Fayed. When Diana died in a car crash in 1997, conspiracy theories quickly spread – and director Allen, as the title already suggests, also believes that Diana was killed by the British Establishment. The official trailer uses the word „murder“ several times and presents several „witnesses“. If the film really presents hard evidence or simply cashes in on it’s subject remains to be seen. In Britain, the trailer already caused a lot of controversy, not only because it suggests that Diana was killed but also because it shows a photo of the dying „Queen of Hearts“. „Unlawful Killing“ was partly financed by Mohammed Al Fayed.
