She was the most photographed, the most loved and talked about, spied on, praised, criticized, popular woman on the planet. All over the globe and in every moment of her long life, that came to an end at the age of 96, people have always wanted to watch her through a peephole, discover new things about her, get to know her better, connect with her and understand her. In order to answer the question: who was Queen Elizabeth, in reality?

And so coming to cinemas now is a film that tells the story of The Queen from a totally new perspective: through the most intense, amazing, revealing photographic portraits of her. This is the idea that inspired Portrait of the Queen, an event-documentary that not only features Elizabeth II’s lengthy reign, but also shows how photography, a seemingly "mute" art, has paid an exceptional tribute to the Queen, by creating a seventy-year-long album, unique in the world for its variety, intensity and richness.

Fashion designer Gerly Tinn will make an introduction to the film screenings.
