The Confederation for Analytical Psychology’s Jung and Film series continues on Sunday 19 March with a showing of “Bloody Sunday” by director Paul Greengrass (2002). The film will be presented by Christopher Hauke, Jungian analyst and film consultant. There will be audience discussion afterwards. Continuing our series on ‘Nationhood, Identity and the Other’ is Paul Greengrass’ feature debut Bloody Sunday, a 2002 film about the 1972 “Bloody Sunday” shootings in Derry, Northern Ireland.
This critically acclaimed movie was inspired by Don Mullan’s politically influential book Eyewitness Bloody Sunday (Wolfhound Press, 1997). The drama shows the events of the day through the eyes of Ivan Cooper (James Nesbitt) an SDLP Member of the Parliament of Northern Ireland who was a central organiser of the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association march in Derry on 30 January 1972. The march ended when British Army paratroopers fired on the demonstrators, killing thirteen and wounding another who died later. Despite the achievements of the Good Friday agreement and the integration of IRA members into the Northern Ireland Parliament, to this day there are calls for murder charges to be brought arising out of that bloody day.
Filmed in a verité style which Greengrass honed as director of several ITV World in Action documentaries, this film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on 16 January, was screened on ITV on 20 January, and then in selected London cinemas from 25 January. Paul Greengrass wrote and directed the production, and later went on to direct the films Bourne (2004- 2016), The Green Zone (2010) and Captain Phillips (2013).
