para­mil­i­tary Michael Stone killed three mourn­ers, in­clud­ing IRA mem­ber Kevin Brady, and in­jured 60 oth­ers.

At Brady’s funeral three days later, two Bri­tish Army cor­po­rals drove into the cortege and were beaten and killed by some mem­bers of the crowd.

It is only now, 30 years af­ter the hor­ri­fy­ing events in March 1988, dur­ing which hand grenades were thrown in a ceme­tery and sol­diers were dragged to their deaths, that any­one has agreed to talk about it.

This is a bleak doc­u­men­tary, about that cat­a­strophic fort­night, hear­ing from Repub­li­cans, Loy­al­ists, se­cu­rity forces and vic­tims’ fam­i­lies, gain­ing very dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives.

The news footage is not easy to watch, but it’s a com­pelling in­sight into the hu­man side of the tragedies, as peo­ple in­ti­mately con­nected to what hap­pened share their mov­ing sto­ries for the first time.
