Back in its fifth year, 2019’s Irish Film Festival Australia’s program features comedy, drama, animation, shorts and documentary film direct from Ireland.

The Festival kicks off with the screening of Unquiet Graves at Penrith Gaels on Wednesday 1 May 2019

This documentary alleges that the British government colluded with Loyalist paramilitaries in the deaths of more than 120 citizens in Ireland in the early 70’s.

Unquiet Graves details how members of the RUC and UDR, (a British Army regiment) were centrally involved in the murder of over 120 innocent civilians during the recent conflict in Ireland. It details how members worked hand in hand with known sectarian murderers in a campaign aimed at terrorising the most vulnerable in society.
