One-off

On the occasion of Elizabeth II 90's birthday (in 2016), this documentary offers an iconoclastic and distanced look of the Monarchy and the British society.

Few countries in the world have experienced an economic, social, cultural and artistic evolution as important as the United Kingdom in these last sixty years.

Based on unpublished archival footage and exclusive interviews (singers Paul McCartney and Keith Richards, writers Martin Amis, Ian McEwan and Salman Rushdie, artists David Hockney and Damien Hirst, actress Helen Mirren as well as leading politicians), off off main stream Ballad for a Queen is an historic ambulation in various symbolic places of England, an unprecedented portrait of the British Monarchy and its relations with the british society these last decades.
