Hillsborough is an in-depth, moving account of Britain’s worst sporting disaster, in which 96 men, women and children were killed, hundreds injured and thousands traumatised.

Beginning with that fateful day, April 15 1989, the film details the horror of the tragedy, told through the experiences of those directly involved: fans, survivors, family members and police officers - many speak publicly for the first time.

The two-hour film features never-before-seen footage and captures the crush on the terraces. It recounts the 27-year campaign for answers fought on behalf of the 96 who died, right up to and including the inquest verdict.

The film is directed by Daniel Gordon for VeryMuchSo Productions in association with Executive Producer John Battsek’s Passion Pictures.
