Unquiet Graves details how members of the RUC and UDR were centrally involved in the murder of over 120 innocent civilians.

Seán Murray’s film details how members worked hand in hand with known sectarian murderers in the targeted assassinations of farmers, shopkeepers, publicans and other civilians in a campaign aimed at terrorising the most vulnerable in society.

Now known as the Glenanne Gang, the group of killers rampaged through counties Tyrone and Armagh, and across into the Irish Republic in a campaign that lasted from July 1972 to the end of 1978.

After years of painstaking work by human rights groups The Pat Finucane Centre (PFC) and Dublin-based Justice for the Forgotten (JFF), and the subsequent release of Anne Cadwallader’s best-selling book, ‘Lethal Allies’, the scale of collusion between the British government and loyalist death squads has now become apparent.

Narrated by Belfast-born actor Stephen Rea, Unquiet Graves is “outstanding documentary film-making combining in-depth research and personal testimony to expose the undeniable truth of state collusion and its fatal consequences.” Phil Scraton, Author, Hillsborough: The Truth

The 6.00pm screening on Thurs 7 March will be followed by a Q&A with director Seán Murray, hosted by Phil Scraton.
