HUNGER is the most honored debut film of the
year and perhaps of the decade. The stunningly
assured debut feature from Turner Prize-winning
visual artist Steve McQueen was the winner of the
2008 Cannes Camera d'Or and over twenty top
international prizes. The film is a work of astonishing
precision co-written by acclaimed Irish playwright
Enda Walsh and starring Michael Fassbender (300)
in an unflinchingly passionate turn as Bobby Sands,
leader of the fateful 1981 hunger strike
in Northern Ireland's notorious Maze Prison.
