Film: Bloody Sunday

Jan 25, 2019

Set a mere seven months before the Belfast bombings that inspired Tim Shaw’s immersive piece "Mother, the Air is Blue, the Air is Dangerous," Bloody Sunday recreates in minute detail the events leading up to and following “Bloody Sunday,” in which British soldiers shot 28 unarmed Irish civilians during a peaceful protest march in Derry, Northern Ireland. "Bloody Sunday" not only offers valuable historical context in understanding the origins of many of Shaw’s pieces but also compellingly depicts a conflict whose repercussions are still deeply felt today. (107 minutes, rated R)

Show your film screening ticket for free Museum same-day admission during Art After Hours from 5:00–8:00 p.m.
