Directed by Paul Greengrass
In this gritty
documentary-style feature, director Paul Greengrass provides a compelling
and emotional look at the 1972 Bloody Sunday riots in Derry, Ireland where
a group of Catholic protestors were brutally killed by British troops.
Filmed with a hand-held camera, Greengrass recreates that fateful day with
a startling immediacy and realism. "Both an admirable reconstruction of
terrible events, and a fitting memorial to the dead of that day" (John
Patterson, L.A. Weekly). Winner of the Best Picture Audience Award
at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival. 107 minutes.
