Watch Hunger

"An odyssey, in which the smallest gestures become epic and when the body is the last resource for protest."

Huger is a film that depicts harsh treatments and strong wills of individuals that are willing to fight for what they strongly believe in morally. Hunger is also a film about a man by the name of Bobby Sands who is a Provisional Irish Republican Army volunteer and M.P. who in fact led the second Irish Republican Army hunger strike, as well as participating in the no wash protest, where Republican prisoners try to recover political status that was revoked in 1976 by The British Government.

This film in which Bobby Sands participate in the hunger strike where he is put into prison along with many others that are on the hunger strike, are real events. Many prisoners are tortured and mistreated daily, they are humiliated in front of other men, and staff of the prison. Terrible events happen in the prison where the inmates are beaten and physically search inappropriately.

Throughout the course of this film various of events take place that are terrific. While on this strike nine other inmates die including Bobby sands, before the entire hunger strike was called off.

This film shows the strikes that took place and the sad outcomes, the results that were left after them. These strikes are events that took place in time and that many have never forgot. This film based on the courage of the men that lost their lives, trying to fight for their rights and what they felt strongly about, what they wanted desperately to be their overall reality.

Through this film viewers will see that in certain circumstances it causes extreme measures like these strikes that the men like Bobby sands embarked on, although he lost his life, he died knowing that he stood for what he truly and profoundly believe in.
