SEEKING FOOTAGE OF DIANA! Do you have home movie footage of the Princess of Wales? Get in touch!

Lightbox are making the first ever archive-only cinema documentary about the extraordinary life of the Princess of Wales, and we need you!

The film will be constructed exclusively from archive footage, audio recordings and photographs. We are keen to speak with those who might have filmed Diana in any capacity, regardless of quality or length. In addition, we are also looking for any home movie footage of the wedding celebrations in 1981 and Diana’s funeral in 1997.

If you have any personal home movie footage or photographs, or any other material which you think could be of interest, we want to hear from you!

Telluride 2019 Lineup: ‘Ford v Ferrari,’ ‘Uncut Gems,’ Tributes to Adam Driver and Renee Zellweger

Tell Me Who I Am, directed by Ed Perkins, is screening tonight and throughout the weekend at the Telluride Film Festival! Here's what Indiewire had to say about the film:

"Many of these selections might seem inevitable for the festival, given its history, but Telluride has often served as a launchpad for more unusual non-fiction achievements, such as “The Act of Killing.” In the 2019 program, that distinction appears to belong to Ed Perkins’ “Tell Me Who I Am,” another Netflix title, which revolves around a man who awakens from a coma with amnesia and whose twin brother feeds him questionable information about his past."

The fall movie season kicks off in Colorado, where other major entries include Edward Norton's "Motherless Brooklyn," Zellweger in "Judy," and "The Aeronauts."

When is diagnosis being aired?
We partnered with TINA: THE MUSICAL on this series of shorts to promote the upcoming musical about the life and work of one of my absolute heroes, TINA TURNER. Tina doesn't really do interviews, so it was a real honor to shoot with her a couple time for these shorts. Her story is so empowering and so relevant for the times we are currently living in. The shorts were produced by Lightbox and directed by Lightbox's own Ed Perkins.
