Q and A from investigative journalist Barry McCaffrey who was arrested and subsequently released without charge after the making of the film

Ireland's victory over Italy at the World Cup in New Jersey in 1994 remains a source of Irish pride. But it is haunted by memories of a massacre: terrorists opened fire and killed six innocent people while they watched the match in a small village pub in Northern Ireland. Remarkably, no one was ever charged for the crime.

Investigative documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney - best known for 2008's Oscar-winning 'Taxi to the Dark Side', 'Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room', and at least a dozen others - turns his sights on the 1994 Loughinisland massacre, a cold case that remains an open wound in the Irish peace process. The families of the victims who were murdered while watching the World Cup in their local pub were promised justice, but 25 years later they still don't know who killed their loved ones. Gibney uncovers a web of secrecy, lies, and corruption.
