Keith Allen’s provocative documentary on the inquest into the deaths of Dodi Fayed & Diana, Princess of Wales to screen at the Galway Film Fleadh on Wednesday, 6th July 2011.
Unlawful Killing is the true story of the violent death of Princess Diana, and the subsequent cover-up by the British Establishment, culminating (after a decade of delay) in an Inquest held at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.
Prohibited from being screened in the UK for legal reasons,
Unlawful Killing will receive its FIRST EVER public screening at the Galway Film Fleadh following its explosive private screening to press & industry at The Cannes Film Festival in May.
Commenting on the Galway screening, filmmaker Keith Allen said: ‘I am looking forward to screening Unlawful Killing in public for the very first time. Finally, the Irish public will be able to judge for themselves whether Unlawful Killing has a point to make. A liberty not afforded the British public as it is banned in the UK!’
Director Keith Allen was at the centre of the inquest, covertly observing proceedings in the courtroom and amongst the press.
His groundbreaking documentary recreates key moments from the inquest, and demonstrates how the cover-up was perpetrated. It shows 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 British media, systematically misreported what was happening.
