The critically acclaimed documentary Bobby Sands: 66 Days is opening today, August 5th, in Irish cinemas nationwide.

The documentary is a portrait of the Irish Republican’s 66-day hunger strike. 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.

Directed by Brendan J Byrne and produced by Trevor Birney with Oscar winning filmmaker Alex Gibney as Consulting Producer this documentary aims to give an insight into a turbulent time in 20th century Irish history, the legacy of which we continue to live with today.
