Event Details

Derek Jarman, the great British filmmaker, artist, and provocateur, passed away 25 years ago on February 19, 1994 at the age of 52. His late masterpiece The Garden was made in 1990 as Jarman was struggling with AIDS. Shot on Super 8, 16mm, and HI8 video, starring a young Tilda Swinton, and featuring a sublime score by Simon Fisher Turner, The Garden is a visually stunning, deeply personal film about homosexuality, Christianity, and persecution filmed at Jarman’s coastal home in the shadow of a nuclear power station. Screening in a new 2K restoration.
