Six people were gunned down by U.V.F. gunmen in The Heights Bar in Loughinisland in June 1994.

Titled, 'No Stone Unturned', the documentary is directed by Academy Award winner, Alex Gibney.

Six people were murdered when U.V.F. gunmen burst into a bar in the Co. Down village of Loughinisland and opened fire; five others were injured.

The attack took place while people had gathered inside the bar to watch the Republic of Ireland play against Italy in the 1994 World Cup finals in the USA.

The film was described by ScreenDaily.com Chief Film Critic, Fionnula Halliigan, as "Long and detailed and frequently terrifying".

Director Alex Gibney won his Oscar in 2007 for 'Taxi to the Dark Side' - a documentary which exposed the haunting details of the USA's torture and interrogation practices during the war in Afghanistan.

'No Stone Unturned' is due to be released in Irish cinemas on November 10.

The dead and injured were watching a football match when the U.V.F. gunmen burst into the bar and opened fire.
