This is quite a coup. ‘Unlawful Killing‘ is Keith Allen’s film about the cover up by the British Establishment of the deaths of Diana, Princess of Wales Dodi Fayed and Henri Paul, their driver, after a car chase in Paris in August 1998. This film cannot be shown in the UK for legal reasons.
‘Unlawful Killing’ was shown in a private screening at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year but will have it’s first public screening at the Galway Film Fleadh on Wednesday 6th July.
“Commenting on the Galway screening, film-maker 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.
This is not about a conspiracy before the crash, but about a provable cover-up after the crash.”
