‘No Stone Unturned’ – Alex Gibney

"No Stone Unturned" director, Alex Gibney.

"No Stone Unturned" director, Alex Gibney.

In ‘No Stone Unturned’ Oscar-winning documentarian Alex Gibney turns his lens to collusion by state forces in the Loughinisland massacre, when six men watching the 1994 World Cup in a rural Irish pub were shot dead by a masked gunman.

It is with signature relentlessness that Gibney doggedly pursues the story of an alleged cover-up and collusion at the highest level of British police and governmental authority. His investigation should serve to bring this quest for truth and justice closer to a conclusion.

Irish American and native New Yorker Gibney is one of cinema’s most impactful documentary directors and is best known for tackling big stories such as the Enron scandal, Scientology, clerical sex abuse, and Al Qaeda.

‘Emerald City’ - Colin Broderick

Writer and director of "Emerald City", Colin Broderick.

Writer and director of "Emerald City", Colin Broderick.

Colin Broderick’s debut feature film finds a hard-working and hard-partying crew of Irish construction workers in New York who left Ireland in an era of closeted oppression and sectarian violence. These lovable, but no longer fresh-faced rogues, have spent their adult lives self-medicating against a past that is starting to catch up with them.

Each guy on the "Emerald City" crew is struggling with something: drinking, gambling, loss, the burden of a family legacy, and facing a city that doesn't need them anymore.

A native of County Tyrone, Broderick moved to New York City in 1988 and worked as a carpenter for 20 years. His debut movie comes from a place of experience. Broderick's drinking memoir, “Orangutan,” was published in 2009. This was followed by another memoir in 2013, “That’s That.” His new book, an anthology entitled “The Writing Irish of New York,” will be published this spring by Fordham University Press.

A documentary about emigration, hardship, and dedication to a dream. “Rocky Ros Muc” tells the story of trailblazing boxer Sean Mannion, who grew up in a poor, Irish-speaking village in Connemara in the 1970s and rose through the boxing ranks and eventually competed for the World Boxing Association title in Madison Square Garden. "Rocky Ros Muc" examines the spirit inside the ring and the troubles outside, as well as the reality of emigration and its impact on identity.

“Rocky Ros Muc” is a story about identity and community, not just for Sean Mannion, but for thousands of emigrants like him.

Those nominated are Michael Fanning and Máire Breathnach the movies producers. Michael Fanning’s previous credits include that of Executive Producer on Trevor Birney’s 2014 documentary “Thatcher & the IRA: Dealing with Terror.” Máire Breathnach previously worked as an actor on the series "Turas Teanga," a 20-part Irish language refresher course.
