The Princess (CTC)

The Princess movie poster

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?

Director: Ed Perkins

★★★★ "a stark, powerful yet moving exploration of a turbulent life, and the human cost involved" HEYUGUYS

"The use of nothing but archival footage to recount Diana's rise, her perpetual "trial by television" and her fall isn't a gimmick -- it's a stroke of genius" ROLLING STONE

"Ed Perkins' remarkable film eschews many of the trappings we've come to associate with the modern documentary, and is all the better for it" INDIEWIRE

"Perkins brings an entirely new perspective to her life and the events that lead to her untimely death" FILM THREAT
