No Stone Unturned to tackle the troubles in November release


The latest film by Alex Gibney is set for release in Irish and UK cinemas on the 10th of November. The documentary director has courted both awards and controversy for films like Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief and We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks will be exploring the Troubles in his film No Stone Unturned.

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) will be released in Irish and UK cinemas from Friday 10th November.

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 by Wildcard Distribution in cinemas across Ireland and the UK from Friday, November 10th.
