BLOODY SUNDAY: A DERRY DIARY
Margo Harkin
86 mins
On 30th January 1972 the British Army shot dead thirteen unarmed civilians on a civil rights march in Derry, Northern Ireland. Confidence in British justice evaporated among the victims’ families when Lord Widgery exonerated the soldiers and blighted the reputation of those killed and wounded. Filmmaker Margo Harkin follows the families’ long search for the truth at the new Tribunal of Inquiry into `Bloody Sunday’ held in Derry and London over a 6-year period. The result is a compassionate and heartfelt film, charged with moral outrage and pointed political commentary.

THE HUNGER STRIKE
Margo Harkin
59 mins
Of all the volatile periods in Northern Ireland’s recent history the Hunger Strikes is one of the most impassioned and significant historically. It was a key event in the relationship between the British Government and Irish Republicans, a unifying force for nationalists and a focal point for world opinion. It brought Sinn Fein into electoral politics and is largely responsible for the strong electoral position they have achieved today. The 25th anniversary of the death of Bobby Sands took place on 5th May 2006. Filmmaker Margo Harkin revisits the dramatic story of how and why Sands and 9 others died a death so extreme it convulsed politics in Northern Ireland and Britain and drew world wide attention to the one of the most extreme protests in prison history. A painful and memorable film, The Hunger Strike is the definitive telling of this tragic period in Anglo-Irish history.
