Sunday 22 September: The Angelic Conversation

Sunday 22 September: The Angelic Conversation

A classic of experimental filmmaking by Derek Jarman. The images-beautiful in a grainy, unpolished way-consist of "people I like in place and spaces I like," young men in the landscape swimming at the beach, seen at windows, in the forest, making love. The soundtrack, set to music by Coil, is Judi Dench's reading of fourteen of Shakespeare's sonnets, those written to the young man.

Friday 27 September: The Last of England

Saturday 28 September: The Garden

Saturday 28 September: The Garden

Jarman the gardener is a dreamer… His starting points are his own failing body, his home, and his garden. From these, his inner self conjures the dreams that fill the film, some rooted in his own secret desires, some drawn from his long-established interests as an artist, some born from his impotent anger at the world.
Sunday 29 September: Blue

Sunday 29 September: Blue

Derek Jarman's Blue is a rhapsodic hymn to love, dedicated to "all true lovers"...It is also a work at the outer limits of cinematic expression: seventy-six minutes of luminous blue screen complemented by a meticulously recorded soundtrack
