"The Irish in Film"

Date: 10-16-2019

Time: 07:00 PM

Location: Dimenna-Nyselius Library's Multimedia Room

Alex Gibney's hard-hitting documentary "No Stone Unturned" (2017) will be presented on October 16.  The story is an investigation of the 1994 Loughinisland massacre in a Northern Ireland pub during a World's Cup soccer game (Ireland vs. Italy).  

Six Catholic civilians were murdered by masked members of the anti-IRA loyalist paramilitary group.  Although the murderers were known to the police, no one has ever been been charged with the crime. The film alleges a government cover-up that involves high-ranking officials. 

The film was made possible by the Irish Film Institute and Culture Ireland and Arts Council Ireland.

Dr. Kevin Cassidy will introduce the film and lead the Q. & A. following the screening.

The film series is free and open to the public.  Light refreshments
