Media release: Macrae hoping to shine a light on The Troubles, in Northern Ireland, with screening in Edinburgh


A DOCUMENTARY about The Troubles in Northern Ireland, by Scots investigative journalist, Callum Macrae, is scheduled to be screened in Edinburgh – but only if sufficient tickets are sold in advance.

Ballymurphy Precedent examines the sequence of events between the death of 11 people, in Ballymurphy, Belfast, in August 1971, and Bloody Sunday in January the following year.

It is being launched a week on Thursday, with simultaneous screenings in over 30 cinemas in the UK and Ireland, followed by a live Q and A with Channel 4 News’ Jon Snow and Macrae simulcast from the Curzon in Soho, London. There are currently screenings planned in Glasgow (at the GFT from August the 30th to September 2nd) and at the Edinburgh Vue on the 5th September.

Macrae, a Emmy, BAFTA and Grierson-nominated filmmaker, is a former Scotland correspondent for The Observer.

Tickets for the proposed Edinburgh screening – for which 50 tickets require to be sold before it can go ahead – can be found here:
