The Ballymurphy Precedent
Dartmouth Films Presents an Awen Media Production of an Outsider Movie Company Film in Association with Channel 4
Director Callum Macrae
The Ballymurphy Precedent tells the unknown story death of eleven innocent people at the hands of the British Army in a Catholic estate in Belfast in 1971. This is a massacre that few have heard of, yet it was one of the most significant events in the Troubles. The British army continues to cover it up because they cannot afford to admit the truth. The relatives of those who died are fighting for justice – and our investigation shows why. This secret massacre led directly to the Bloody Sunday killings by the same Parachute regiment just five months later.
The World Premiere will be at Sheffield Doc Festival Monday 11th June and it will also be screened there on Tuesday 12th June.
