STUDIO SYNOPSIS: Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she's ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

"The Hunger Games" is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson's Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins' best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 16 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.

THEME: Discovering One’s Own Humanity


Director: Gary Ross


JENNIFER LAWRENCE as Katniss Everdeen, ALEXANDER LUDWIG as Cato, ELIZABETH BANKS as Effie Trinket.


LENNY KRAVITZ as Cinna, WOODY HARRELSON as Haymitch Abernathy and JOSH HUTCHERSON as Peeta Mellark.


ISABELLE FUHRMAN as Clove, WES BENTLEY as Seneca Crane and Donald Sutherland as President Snow


Collins: It tackles "issues like severe poverty, starvation, oppression, and the effects of war among others." The choices the characters make and the strategies they use are often morally complex. Additional themes include government control, 'big brother', and personal independence.
