We are down to our last two screenings of Steve McQueen’s remarkable film Hunger. It’s been an incredible honor for us to present this landmark work of Cinema for its exclusive Twin Cities engagement. For me personally, it was an intense and transcendent cinematic experience, and one that actually surpassed my incredibly high expectations.
Our intern, Emily Hanson had some interesting observations on the film, and I tend to agree that the less you know about this film going into it the better, but you’re here and likely quite aware of what’s been said and written as I was. That said, for further background on the film and filmmaker, you can hear an excellent interview with director Steve McQueen from the CDC/Radio-Canada’s Q podcast. The McQueen portion begins about two thirds of the way into the mp3 file. (Thanks to our amazing (and Canadian) Visual Arts Fellow Andria Hickey for the link.)
We would love to hear your thoughts on the film as well, please let us know by posting a comment.
