QualityTime-ESL Comprendre le “Bloody Sunday” à Derry, en musique et films - TRAVEL AND FILM - Blog de Voyages et Cinéma Vous connaissez tous cette chanson si célèbre « Sunday, Bloody Sunday » de U2, mais savez-vous bien de quoi elle parle et ce que Bono raconte dans ses paroles ? L’histoire du Bloody Sunday = dimanche sanglant Le 30 janvier 1972, à Derry en Ulster alors que les catholiques d’Irlande du Nord manifestent encore pour l’égalité avec les protestants, les parachutistes britanniques ouvrent le feu sur une foule totalement pacifique de 20 000 personnes, faisant 14 morts et autant de blessés, parmi eux beaucoup n’avaient que 17 ans.

The Representation of Non-Violent Political Activism in Bloody Sunday and Omagh – Offscreen Bloody Sunday The debate between violence and constitutionalism runs through films about Irish history, and in particularly those which deal with political violence in Northern Ireland (generally referred to as “the Troubles”). This conflict is typically dramatized in the form of an Irish Republican Army (IRA) member considering giving up violence. Two relatively recent films, Bloody Sunday (2002, Paul Greengrass) and Omagh (2004, Pete Travis) are unusual and interesting because the question they dramatize is whether their protagonists should reject non-violence, but offer different conclusions to its effectiveness and legitimacy. Historically, one of the constants in films dealing with the Troubles is the dramatic tension between two paramilitary gunmen. This concern is central to the Jim Sheridan-Terry George trilogy of Troubles films. The two “sides” are also represented in different ways. Omagh Having introduced the two sides, the film then tests the theory of non-violence.
