"Derry, in Northern Ireland, was a self-declared autonomous nationalist area, broken apart from the UK for 3 years. In 1969, activists against the British and their maltreatment of Catholics, put up barracades in a small area of Derry, and labelled it ‘Free Derry’. Over the next three years battles ensued between these activists, the police, the IRA and eventually the British army.

The situation escellated until what is now know as ‘Bloody Sunday’, where 26 unarmed protesters were shot by the British military, resulting in 14 dead, including 7 teenagers.

This documentary takes raw video, photographs and interviews of people involved to tell the story of Free Derry – a small area’s fight for equal rights."
