The Disappeared

1 h 24 min201413+
The powerful story of those killed and then secretly buried by the IRA during the conflict in Northern Ireland. What do you do when your mother disappears and never comes back? Uncovering new hard evidence that Gerry Adams was deeply involved in one of the killings, this is a landmark documentary on the 'Troubles', the hard men who drove it and issues of accountability when peace finally comes.

Lies and More Lies
Verified purchase
This was a very well researched film and either Adams is a big liar or everybody else is. I know what I think. He will never admit to knowledge of even one death because he knows that would implicate him in other 'disappeared.' To suggest that Jean McConville was killed without his OK as IRA OC Belfast is quite ludicrous. Her death can be investigated as a member of the public found her so maybe they might get him after all, unless MI5 are still protecting him, as they did in the 'dirty' war. A thought provoking documentary as always by Dermot Murnaghan.

A provocative and chilling story
Verified purchase
A provocative and chilling story. An excellent piece of journalism by Darragh Macintyre. To think these atrocities failed to advance the cause of Irish nationalism and count for absolutely nothing except for the misery of their families. Ireland is now closer to unification, but not through the senseless violence of Irish nationalists but because of the actions of mostly English nationalists, across the water, in the 2016 referendum on EU separation!

well investigated & filmed documentary
Verified purchase
about the civil war (or as us in the uk call it "troubles") in Northern Ireland & the killings & the practice of dissapaearing people instead of the usual executing & leaving them to be found as a warning.
I have been to the shankhill road area a few years ago as part of the black cab tours you can get, guided by people from both sides who were involved & are very interesting.
