The Miami Showband Massacre: Documentary Review

From wanting to learn about the Irish Beatles, I was hooked by the documentary that reflects a lot of the conflict that the world is still suffering from — the violence, the death, the political motivations that fuel these atrocities. I was moved by The Miami Showband Massacre and the deaths of these musicians who only sought to bring joy to a people who needed relief from the misery of their everyday life. My heart ached for the loss of idealism and hope at a time when the Irish people needed it. I mourned this tragic stage of their history and although its 40 years too late, and closure is still a long way off, the documentary succeeded in raising questions that need to be asked, and thus created an avenue for which it can be answered once and for all.
