ALEX GIBNEY’S No Stone Unturned TO RELEASE ON VOD IN NORTH AMERICA JANUARY 8TH 2018
Following its world premiere at New York Film Festival in September and limited theatrical release in November, Alex Gibney’s latest documentary feature No Stone Unturned will be available nationwide on VOD in North America fromMonday, January 8th 2018, courtesy of Kew Media Group.
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.
Families were torn apart. Lives were ruined, or upended. Yet no one has even spent a single day in prison for this heinous crime. There was never any doubt about the motivations for the shootings – the Ulster Volunteer Force, the most powerful of the pro-British protestant militias and foes of the Irish Republican Army (seeking reunification with Ireland), had waged a long and bloody sectarian battle against Catholic interests in Northern Ireland. But rural Loughinisland had been, for all intents and purposes, set apart from the brutal sectarian battle zones in Belfast and Derry and along the Border with the Irish Republic. “You couldn’t have picked any more innocent,” says Aiden O’Toole, who was tending bar that fateful night, and became one of the wounded himself.
Through interviews with victims’ families, former terrorists, officers of the Royal Ulster Constabulary and other government officials, No Stone Unturned puts flesh and blood on a story that some would prefer to remain buried. By connecting dots on official documents, navigating previously uncharted leaks of information, and putting together what would be a prosecutor’s dream – or nightmare — Gibney connects the dots between mass murder and official malfeasance, between memory and sanctioned amnesia. The results are guaranteed to shock, appall, and resonate most resoundingly and hauntingly with audiences worldwide.
“The cover up was staggering in terms of its breadth and audacity, especially given the kind of evidence that was at their disposal. With the documents we were able to go through and make connections that were never able to be made before. And once that happened, we were able to dig a little deeper,” says Alex Gibney.
No Stone Unturned is a Fine Points Film in association with Jigsaw Productions and Kew Media Group, available on all major VOD platforms in North America from Monday January 8th, 2018.
