"The Irish in Film"
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
