Hunger, filmed October 2007,


Friday, March 20 - Thursday, April 2, 2009

Northern Ireland, 1981: in Her Majesty’s Maze prison a group of IRA fighters led by Bobby Sands (the astonishing Michael Fassbender) defies the guards’ efforts to break them. Subjected to brutal repression and harrowing physical ordeals, they turn their bodies into weapons and announce the ultimate form of resistance–a hunger strike. Deeply lyrical and almost unbearably tense, noted artist Steve McQueen’s meticulously observed first feature marks him as a filmmaker to watch.
