In 1981 provisional IRA member Bobby Sands allowed his body to become the ultimate instrument of protest when he led the Maze prison hunger strike. Directed by Turner Prize-winning artist McQueen and written by Irish playwright Enda Walsh, 'Hunger' is the story of the last six weeks of Sands' life. A brave and unforgettable film, tinged with thematic prescience and the politics of belief.
