Bobby Sands 66 Days Opening in Odyssey Cinema Belfast and Odeon Stillorgan
The feature length documentary has crossed the 200,000 euro mark at the Irish box office and is continuing to draw audiences into cinemas with sold out screenings around the country including a sold out showing at the Omniplex Kennedy Centre last night. 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.
