The Ballymurphy Precedent BBFC 15 Rating

Tuesday 16th October 7.30pm | Taliesin

Dir: Callum Macrae

UK 2018 1hr 45mins



Award-winning director Callum Macrae's new feature documentary tells the story of the death of eleven innocent people killed by the British Army on a Catholic estate in Belfast in 1971, and the fight by their relatives and survivors to discover the truth. This is one of the most shameful – but almost entirely unknown – episodes in the thirty years of the Northern Irish Troubles.
This is a massacre that few have heard of, yet it was one of the most significant events of the Troubles, coming as it did in the first days of internment and six months before Bloody Sunday. Macrae's film is s skilful mixture of investigative journalism, documentary storytelling and a reflection on contemporary history.

“Ultimately this is a film not only about Northern Ireland but about the British state and how the centre of power is repeatedly tempted to discount those at the periphery.” WALES ARTS REVIEW
