From the Academy Award® winning producers of Man on Wire and Searching For Sugar Man comes The Princess, a bold and immersive documentary on the life and death of Princess Diana. Though her story is well documented, The Princess draws exclusively upon contemporaneous archival footage, allowing the narrative to unfold as if it were in the present. The Princess offers an account of Diana’s story – and the public response to it – that feels at once both unmediated and intensely intimate and emotional. Princess Diana’s tragic death, caused in part by a high-speed pursuit by paparazzi, was a moment for reflection by both the public and the media machine it feeds. But after nearly 25 years since Princess Diana’s death, we continue to reflect on the ongoing scandals involving British royalty and wonder if anything has really changed after all these years?
