Imagine! Festival of Ideas & Politics presents a screening of Alex Gibney’s film alongside a discussion exploring the importance of investigative journalism.
Ciarán Hanna (InsideIreland.ie) will introduce the themes of investigative journalism and the threats posed to it, followed by a showing of Alex Gibney’s 2017 documentary about the 1994 Loughinisland pub massacre, No Stone Unturned.
Ten years of research went into the documentary film, which tells the story of a brutal shooting in a country pub when masked men gunned down locals, leaving six dead and five injured. It also reveals a litany of alleged corruption involving police, paramilitary gangs and the army - before, during and after the killings.
Barry McCaffrey, the reporter on the film, is an award-winning Belfast investigative journalist. Both Trevor Birney, the producer of No Stone Unturned, and Barry McCaffrey were arrested in 2018 in relation to the research documents that were used in the making of the documentary. There will also be a post panel-discussion and a Q&A with Barry and Trevor.
This event has been organised by InsideIreland.ie and the National Union of Journalists.
Screening as part of Imagine! Festival of Ideas & Politics.
EVENT DURATION: 2 HRS 45 MINS
