Don Mullan at British Film Festival with his Film "Bloody Sunday"

From 22 to 26 of March, 2010 the British Film Festival took place in Yerevan, Armenia.
Today I attended one of the screenings. It was the movie "Bloody Sunday" by Don Mullan.

The "Bloody Sunday", sometimes called the Bogside Massacre, was an incident on 30 January 1972 in the Bogside area of Derry, Northern Irland. Twenty-seven civil rights protesters were shot by the British Army during a Northern Irland Civil Rights Association march. Thirteen people, seven of whom were teenagers, died immediately, while the death of another person 4 and a half months later has been attributed to the injuries he received on the day.

You can find the trailer of the film here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbO3W8RB0TY

After the film we had a discussion with the co-producer of the film-Don Mullan. As a very generous person he answered all our questions for more than an hour.

Armenian Genocide: front-page coverage

Armenian genocide has always been in the spotlight of Armenian as well as foreign media.

Especially notable are English, Russian, French and American coverage and publications on issues pertaining Hamidian massacres, Adana atrocities and of course, the Genocide of 1915-1922 (see some of them below).

Foreign media publications condemning the violence of Ottoman power against Armenians serve as an indirect evidence of the fact that the Turkish atrocities were indeed genocide committed against Armenians.

If you have any other publications by foreign media with cover pages about Armenian Genocide please send them to arminenia@gmail.com .

Publications with particular photos are predominantly remarkable for they convey valuable information about genocide as a phenomenon, its process and consequences.

The online exhibition on front-page coverage of the Armenian genocide by the foreign media is presented first time at http://www.genocide-museum.am/ website.
The coverage of the issue began appearing in the beginning of the 19th century and continues finding its place in the modern day media publications. These publications evidence the world wide response on Armenian genocide issue confirming its actuality, importance and awareness among international community.

The online-exhibition presented by Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute displays although valuable but only a modest part of such publications and thus is open for new material submissions.
