Documentary-style drama showing the events that led up to the tragic incident on January 30, 1972 in the Northern Ireland town of Derry when a protest march led by civil rights activist Ivan Cooper was fired upon by British troops, killing 13 protesters and wounding 14 more.Written by
As Ivan Cooper exits home, a theater can be seen, where the movie Sunday Bloody Sunday (1971), which was actually showing at the time, is showing. See more »
The marchers carry homemade cardboard signs with slogans written on them. When shown from behind, some have modern printing ("Made in China") on them that are not appropriate for 1972. See more »
I just want to say this to the British Government... You know what you've just done, don't you? You've destroyed the civil rights movement, and you've given the IRA the biggest victory it will ever have. All over this city tonight, young men... boys will be joining the IRA, and you will reap a whirlwind.

A very well done movie. I found it to be a very factual and a very frank account of a terrible time in Irish/British history.
When compared to other books and materials I have read about the account in the past few years, I would have to say it was probably about as accurate as it could be. Of course we don't hear the exact language that was used, especially by British commanders during that time, but I think the movie gives a very likely occurrence of what happened behind closed doors.
Soldiers that were allowed to speak up, many years after the fact, have themselves, shed light onto what happened during that time.
