Ruled ineligible to compete for an Oscar in 2003 because it was shown on Irish and British television on the same night that it premiered in a London theater, a violation of the motion picture academy's Rule 3, which requires a six-month wait between the time it is shown in theaters and the time it is shown on TV.
To make this movie as authentic as possible, no lights were used in the movie and the camera work was entirely hand-held
As Ivan Cooper exits home, a theater can be seen, where the movie Sunday Bloody Sunday (1971), which was actually showing at the time, is showing.
Three days after this movie's UK television broadcast, Sunday (2002) aired on TV, which chronicled the same event from an alternate perspective.
The Provisional IRA at the time can be heard shouting "Up the Ra".
The civil rights march was organized 30 January 1972. This march developed into what was called "Bloody Sunday", when 14 unarmed civilians were killed.
