CSFF 2017: ‘Hillsborough’ Review

On April 15, 1989, one of the worst days in football (soccer) history occurred. 96 men and women went to watch a game and never returned. Growing up as a Liverpool fan my Grandpa always told me about the Hillsborough disaster and how important it was that we honour the memory of those 96 who lost their lives. Each year around the anniversary of the disaster, Anfield (Liverpool’s stadium) would go deadly silent in honour of those lives lost. 50,000 people not saying a word. It was haunting.

Hillsborough takes us back to the event and looks at the many mistakes that were made leading up to that day. The director, Daniel Gordon, blends the interviews perfectly with actors acting out events that lead up to that fateful day. The documentary is intense and never drops the pace from minute 1 to minute 120. Gordon has crafted a masterful documentary that will not only educate you, but shock you to your very core. It might be because of my personal attachment to this disaster, but by the end I was holding in the tears.

Rating: 9/10
