Bloody Sunday – A Derry Diary

Director: Margo Harkin

2006| 85 mins Northern Ireland

On 30th January 1972 the British Army shot dead thirteen unarmed civilians on a civil rights march in Derry, Northern Ireland. At the subsequent Tribunal of Inquiry, Lord Chief Justice Widgery exonerated the soldiers and blighted the reputation of those who were killed and wounded. In 1998 a new Tribunal of Inquiry was announced into the day that has become known as ‘Bloody Sunday’. This documentary follows the course of the Inquiry from the point of view of the families of the victims, as they travelled between Derry and London over a five year period. The Inquiry report is expected in early 2007.
