#IrishAbroad: Northern Irish doc No Stone Unturned added to 2017 London Film Festival
The BFI London Film Festival has announced four additional titles for the 2017 festival, which takes place from October 4th to 15th. The four are John Woo’s Manhunt, Xavier Legrand’s Custody, Susanna Nicchiarelli’s Nico, 1988, and Alex Gibney’s Northern Irish-produced No Stone Unturned.
No Stone Unturned is a murder mystery that reveals the kind of secrets the governments keep. In 1994, six people were gunned down as they watched the World Cup in a small pub in a village in Northern Ireland. 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 may 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? The film is produced by Trevor Birney (Bobby Sands: 66 Days) for Fine Point Films.
No Stone Unturned will have its World Premiere at the New York Film Festival at the end of September. It will be joined in London by 7 Irish Film Board-backed features: Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Killing of a Sacred Deerand Nora Twomey’s The Breadwinner which will both receive Gala screenings at the festival, Nick Kelly’s debut feature The Drummer and the Keeper, David Freyne’s The Cured, Pat Collins’ Song of Granite, Duncan Campbell’s short film The Welfare of Tomás Ó Hallissy, and Sinéad O’Shea’s doc, A Mother Brings Her Son To Be Shot.
