Princess Diana murder doc brings controversy to Cannes

By Sean O’Connell Conspiracy theories swirl around most of our major events, from the tragedies of Sept. 11 to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy Jr.

Now a documentary film claiming there was a cover up regarding Princess Diana’s untimely death in 1997 is coming to the Cannes Film Festival, and already, people are up in arms.

The largest complaint, according to the Vancouver Sun, centers around “a graphic photograph of a dying Princess Diana” that is included in director Keith Allen’s “Unlawful Killing.”

Allen’s film was funded by Mohamed Al-Fayed, father of Dodi Fayed, who died in the car crash alongside Diana in the tunnels under Paris.

“Screening this film in Cannes for the world’s media will be both exhilarating and terrifying for me,” Allen said, calling the film “an inquest of the inquest into Diana’s death.”
