No Stone Unturned, the latest film from the producers of Bobby Sands 66 Days and written and directed by the Oscar-winning and prolific American-documentarian Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side) opens in Irish and UK cinemas this Friday 10th November.  There are three special screenings with a Q&A with the film’s producer Trevor Birney over the opening week – Friday 10th in the Irish Film Institute, Saturday 11th November at the Cork Film Festival and Wednesday 15th November in Queens Film Theatre in Belfast.

On 18 June 1994 in the small village of Loughinisland, County Down, three gunmen burst into a pub with assault rifles and fired on the customers, killing six civilians and wounding five. The pub was crowded with people watching the Republic of Ireland team playing in the 1994 FIFA World Cup.  No one has ever spent a day in prison for this, one of the more awful crimes of the Irish “Troubles.”

In the film, Gibney ignites a fire under this cold case that has frustrated the victims’ families for more than 20 years.  Through interviews with victims’ families, former terrorists, officers of the Royal Ulster Constabulary and other government officials as well as piecing together official documents and previously uncharted leaks of information, Gibney explores the incongruities of the case and connects the dots between mass murder and official malfeasance, between memory and sanctioned amnesia.

The film which had its world premiere at the New York Film Festival and screened at the recent BFI London International Film Festival, is a tour de force of investigative journalism and cinematic realism.  A real-life mystery and tragedy dealing with neighbours murdering neighbours, a government betraying its people, and the survivors living with the ever-present fear that the person next to them on the grocery line might the killer of their father, husband or brother.

No Stone Unturned was written and directed by Alex Gibney and produced by Trevor Birney for Fine Point Films in association with Jigsaw Productions and Kew Media Group.

The film will be released in cinemas across Ireland and the UK from this Friday, November 10th.
