To Kill a Queen

52’ & 110’ 4K

It only took three days and two nights to convict the last Queen of France. But the outcome was known in advance, the result of political wrangling and power struggles. Previously unseen documents have revealed a shocking truth about the trial: It was rigged. When Marie Antoinette was led to the Tribunal, her fate was already sealed.

While France was surrounded by hostile foreign powers, threatened by civil uprising, and sinking into a climate of fear and hatred, conspirators firmly believed that killing the Queen was the only way to save their Revolution. And yet, barely two years later, all Marie Antoinette’s tormentors followed her to the scaffold.

To Kill a Queen decodes the fateful years in which the Revolution spiraled inexorably to its tragic fate. An ambitious film that unveils how Marie Antoinette was transformed into one of the greatest symbols of France.
