The film was initially released last Friday and achieved the highest opening weekend ever at the Irish box office for an Irish made documentary. Bobby Sands 66 Days is now the second highest (non-concert) documentary opening of all-time after the international cinema hit Fahrenheit 911. The Oscar winning Amy (also released in Ireland by Wildcard on behalf of Altitude) is in 3rd position.
At 17, Bobby Sands was interested in girls, soccer and music. Ten years later he led a prison protest against the conditions in Northern Ireland’s infamous H-Blocks that grabbed the attention of the whole world. Seeing himself as a soldier in a conflict, Bobby Sands starved for the right to be recognised as a political prisoner. The film’s narrative is comprised of Sands’ own words, drawn from his hunger strike diary, which gives a powerful and personal insight into the man and his beliefs as he embarked on his final journey.
The documentary is also being released on Friday the 19th of September in Eclipse Bundoran, Eclipse Downpatrick, Cinemax Bantry, and The Gate Cork. Here is the full list of cinemas where you can see this powerful documentary today:
