Daria Martin’s most ambitious short film to date, A Hunger Artist is based upon Franz Kafka’s last short story edited from his death-bed in 1924. Futility and endurance are entwined in a story of a durational performance artist whose act of fasting is going out of fashion.

Occupying the main screen in Sheffield’s historic Abbeydale Picture House, a ‘picture palace’ built in the 1920s to present cine-variety theatre before the ‘talkies’ became popular, Martin’s film attends to resistance and human need. A landmark in the life of the Picture House, this will be the first use of the ornate balcony since its heyday in the early 20th century.
