Uma Thurman has shared the video footage of her auto crash on the set of Kill Bill to Instagram, calling an alleged cover-up of the incident by the film's producers - including Harvey Weinstein - an "unforgivable" act.

The footage posted on Instagram shows the 47-year-old actress driving a convertible when she suddenly makes a right turn and crashes into a palm tree.

She added that Tarantino handed over the footage "with full knowledge it could cause him personal harm, and i am proud of him for doing the right thing and for his courage".

She smashed into a palm tree and unseen footage released to Thurman 15 years later by Tarantino shows her slumped over the steering wheel and being carried out of the auto.

She said director Quentin Tarantino persuaded her to drive the auto, despite her being told by a crew member that it could be faulty.

The half-time scoreline, 9-3, was the joint lowest between these two sides in a Six Nations match. France led 13-12 with the clock in the red and Ireland struggling to get out of their half.

Though Thurman wrote that she was posting the video to "memorialize it's [sic] full exposure" in the Times, and emphasize that "the circumstances of this event were negligent to the point of criminality", she also wanted to clear some things up.

Weinstein's representative also sent photos that the spokesperson said "demonstrate the strong relationship Mr. Weinstein and Ms. Thurman had had over the years". Uma recalls the time she was first vulnerable in Weinstein's company, but noting that she didn't 'feel threatened.' His unsolicited advances escalated after this first encounter, though.

In the scene where Thurman is choked by a chain, the director said it was the actress' suggestion to actually be seen in the scene, choking.

During the shooting of "Kill Bill", Uma Thurman got into an accident on an open-topped auto. After the near-death incident, Tarantino and Weinstein both alienated Thurman.

Now, to let her followers know what really transpired on the day she met the accident, Thurman uploaded a shorter clip of the horrendous scene on her social media account. However, before the scene was filmed, they chose to have her drive the opposite direction along the road than previously planned. "Mr. Weinstein wishes Ms. Thurman would have spoken to him at the time to express her concerns and would like for her to provide any additional details so that he can assist in closing and repairing this chapter of her life". He was furious because I'd cost them a lot of time.

Other scenes also depict a monkey - in pharaonic times, monkeys were commonly kept as domestic animals - picking fruit. The tomb includes wall paintings depicting Hetpet observing different hunting and fishing scenes.

According to Tarantino, Uma asked him for the footage because she "wanted clarity on what happened in that auto crash, after all these years", and that, after searching for it and ultimately finding it, he "was very happy to get it to Uma".

Over the weekend, Thurman detailed the on-set crash in Mexico that left her in a neck brace and with damaged knees. That was when I realised there was a pattern, in Harvey's luring and pushing attacks. It possibly made me overlook warning signs.

"I start hearing from the production manager, Bennett Walsh, that Uma is trepidatious about doing the driving shot", Tarantino told Deadline.

CAA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
