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
The clothing on some of the crowd at the start of the civil rights march clearly revealed clothes such as tracksuit bottoms,a rain jacket with a sports logo across the front and a sweatshirt on a young boy at the side of the road which had the letters U.S.A on that were not manufactured at that time.

Obviously an important day in history, and the events of that day are breathtakingly conveyed by the best Docudrama filmmaker we have, Paul Greengrass, Before we Knew who he was-and that may have made a certain difference in my experience of the film-it was more exhilarating (and impressive) before Greengrass had made a name for himself at this kind of documentary-styled filmmaking. This one, when it came out, definitely gave me goosebumps....todd gold
