Bobby Sands 66 Days to Open in Carrick Cineplex Friday the 9th of September
Directed by Brendan J Byrne, Bobby Sands 66 Days is breaking box office records and has become the most successful Northern Irish film in recent years surpassing Steve McQueen’s Hunger and the Terri Hooley bio-pic Good Vibrations.
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.
