Product Description

With HUNGER, British filmmaker and artist Steve McQueen has turned one of history’s most controversial acts of political defiance into a jarring, unforgettable cinematic experience. In Northern Ireland’s Maze prison in 1981, twenty-seven-year-old Irish Republican Army member Bobby Sands went on a hunger strike to protest the British government’s refusal to recognize him and his fellow IRA inmates as political prisoners, rather than as ordinary criminals. McQueen dramatizes prison existence and Sands’ final days in a way that is purely experiential, even abstract, a succession of images full of both beauty and horror. Featuring an intense performance by Michael Fassbender, HUNGER is an unflinching, transcendent depiction of what a human being is willing to endure to be heard.

Format: DVD
This is a stunning, unnerving and powerful film about the religious and political circumstances leading to the death, by self-starvation of Bobby Sands in 1981. Sands was the first of ten hunger-strikers to die at Long Kesh prison in Northern Ireland and this film, superbly directed by Steve McQueen, reimagines the days leading to his death. It also examines, forcefully, the police environment surrounding that death and the way in which violence creates its own violent repercussions. This is a very good movie.
