"With HUNGER, British filmmaker and artist Steve McQueen has turned one of historys most controversial acts of political defiance into a jarring, unforgettable cinematic experience. In Northern Irelands Maze prison in 1981, twenty-seven-year-old Irish Republican Army member Bobby Sands went on a hunger strike to protest the British governments 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."
