Life According To Diana

Aug 31, 2017

8pm - DIANA - Biography - Twenty years after Princess Diana’s death, a new film reveals her story in her own words.

It's been 20 years since Princess Diana was killed in a car crash. Since then Diana’s story has changed from an extraordinary episode in the immediate past to one beginning to resemble history. This film tells the story of Diana’s life using a combination of interviews and archival material, including rarely seen, filmed conversations with Diana that are unique for their directness and disarming frankness.


This film reveals the arc of Diana’s lifestory. Her ambitions and fears — for herself and her children — are all explored. A portrait of the private Diana emerges to complement the public one we already know. The life-journey of a strong, and sometimes flawed, young woman who was widely revered by many. A mother determined to do everything in her power to protect her children. This account of Diana’s life, with all her successes and weaknesses, marries the public person we think we all know with the private person we have rarely seen.
