Ireland’s victory over Italy at the World Cup in New Jersey in 1994 remains a source of Irish pride. But it is haunted by memories of a massacre. On the evening of June 18th, 1994, in a pub in the small village of Loughinisland in Northern Ireland, six men watching the World Cup game were shot and killed by two balaclava-wearing men, and five others were injured. Remarkably, no one was ever charged for the crime. For more than twenty years the victims’ families have searched for answers. Now, at last, they have found them, but what they learn turns a murder mystery into bigger inquiry relevant for us all: what happens when governments cover up the truth?
In the film, Claire Rogan, the widow of one of the victims, recalls being told by authorities that there would be “no stone unturned” in bringing the killers to justice. “I don’t think they ever lifted a stone, never mind turned it,” she says.
With No Stone Unturned, Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney whose powerful investigative documentaries include Taxi to the Dark Side, Going Clear and Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, sets out to uncover the truth behind the Loughinisland Massacre and reveal why the case was not properly investigated. He ignites a fire under a cold case and a black mark on local police and British government.
