Winner - Camera d'Or 2008 Cannes Film Festival Hunger follows life in the Maze Prison, Northern Ireland, with an interpretation of the highly emotive events surrounding the 1981 IRA Hunger Strike led by Bobby Sands. With an epic eye for detail, the film provides a timely exploration of what happens when body and mind are pushed to the uttermost limit.
"Positively riveting. An artistic masterpiece. A harrowing, poetic film" -Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
