This stunningly assured debut feature from Turner Prize-winning visual artist Steve McQueen (director of the Academy Award-winning 12 Years a Slave) 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 (X-Men: Days of Future Past, 12 Years a Slave) in an unflinchingly passionate turn as Bobby Sands, leader of the fateful 1981 hunger strike in Northern Ireland’s notorious Maze Prison.
