Synopsis: Inside a steel cage, the hunger artist makes a living by fasting. Outside, we, the well-fed, watch on. This is the story of cotton pickers, the story of the great fast, the story of anonymous childhoods. The real story of White Gold. A fruitless story. Inspired by Franz Kafka's chilling short story by the same name and Namdev Dhasal's masterpiece poem 'Bhook' (hunger), The Hunger Artist is a moving portrayal of the agrarian crisis, the idea of Spectatorship and ultimately the state of physical and psychological hunger as the modern human condition.
