Hunger

Film debut from British artist Steve McQueen, HUNGER follows life in the Maze Prison, Northern Ireland, with an interpretation of the highly emotive events surrounding Bobby Sands' 1981 IRA Hunger Strike. With an epic eye for detail, McQueen provides a timely exploration of what happens when body and mind are pushed to the uttermost limit.

"Once upon a better time, there were audiences who looked for hardscrabble movies that pushed them out of their comfort zones into uncharted territory. Hunger is such a movie. It's an artistic triumph...a sensory wallop...shockingly immediate and philosophically reflective...an indelibly moving tribute to what makes us human." -Travers, Rolling Stone

"I've seen HUNGER three times...with each screening the spectacle of violence, suffering, and pain becomes more awful and more awe-inspiring." -Hoberman, Village Voice
