"H3" tells the story of the hunger strike from the point
of view of the prisoners in Long Kesh prison. Set in
the H-Blocks of the Maze prison in the North of
Ireland — and co-written by Laurence McKeown who spent
70 days on hunger strike — "H3" charts the period from
the beginning of the hunger strike up until Bobby
Sands' death on 5th May 1981. Through the eyes of
fictional characters, the hunger strikers' survival is
charted with dignity, comradeship and a sense of
humor. The film was directed by Les Blair and stars a
cast of actors drawn mostly from Northern Ireland.

The evening will also includes an exhibition of
artwork and posters from the period of the hunger
strike as well as music and songs about Bobby Sands
and the other hunger strikers by Mary Courtney of the
