Bobby Sands 66 Days Showing From Tomorrow at Movie House Coleraine

1 Mins read

The controversial and wildly successful Bobby Sands 66 Days is being released tomorrow in Movie House Coleraine as part of the growing list of cinemas screening the documentary around Ireland.

Bobby Sands 66 Days is breaking box office records and has gone on to become the most successful Northern Irish film in recent years  surpassing recent hits 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.
