Into Film Clubs provide opportunities to watch, review and make films.
On January 30, 1972, a civil rights march in Derry, Northern Ireland, descended into chaos and tragedy as members of the British Parachute Regiment opened fire on the unarmed protesters, shooting 27 and ultimately killing 14. Director and writer Paul Greengrass's gritty docudrama focuses on the march's real-life leader, politician Ivan Cooper. Greengrass would go on to direct various Bourne films and, though Bloody Sunday is deeply serious, a lot of those films' frenetic style is in evidence here.
Drama following the hunger strike of Provisional IRA members, centring on Bobby Sands. A tense and relentless meditation on brutality.
