A message to Cinestudio patrons:
Unfortunately we have to cancel today’s screening of BOBBY SANDS: 66 DAYS, due to weather conditions.

(Ireland/UK, 2016) Directed by Brendan J. Byrne. Paul Devlin; music. With: Fintan OíToole, Raymond McCord, Seanna Walsh, Denis Sweeney, Gerry Adams,, Denis O’Hearn, Michael Biggs, Brendan O’Cathaoir, Jack Foster, Tomboy Louden, Danny Morrison, Father Sean McManus.

In 1981, the eyes of the world turned to British-ruled North Ireland, when a young man imprisoned for gun possession and membership in the Provisional IRA embarked on the ultimate in non-violent protest: a hunger strike for political prisoner status in his fight for independence. Bobby Sands, followed by nine fellow prisoners in the brutal H-Block, would starve to death as an intransigent Margaret Thatcher refused to meet with them or grant their demands. This new film out of the Republic of Ireland is a fair minded look at those turbulent days before the Clinton Administration pushed both sides towards peace and reconciliation. 105 min.
“Incredibly important and profoundly inspiring. A powerful statement about the effectiveness of non-violent resistance.” – Oktay Ege Kozak, IndieWire.
