Elizabeth: A Portrait in Part(s): Roger Michell’s Docu Gets Free Screening Sunday, Sep 18, Toronto Film Fest

Elizabeth II Death With Screening of Roger Michell’s ‘Elizabeth: A Portrait in Part(s)’

The documentary, based on archival footage of the Queen, will get free public presentation on Sunday at the Toronto Festival.

The last film from the British director, best known for the romantic comedy Notting Hill, stars the Queen herself.

Michell’s documentary comprises archival footage edited into a collage, offering behind-the-scenes look to the long-serving Queen.

Michell, the British stage, television and film director, died a year ago, at the age of 65.

The free screening of Elizabeth: A Portrait in Part(s) will take place at the Scotiabank Theatre in Toronto.

The funeral of the British Queen will take place on Monday.

The national period of mourning for Queen Elizabeth in Canada amid TIFF has an echo of the Canadian festival changing pace on September 6, 1997 when the U.K. held funeral for Princess Diana after her death in tragic car crash in Paris on August 31.
