Melbourne Cinémathèque & ACMI present


Derek Jarman | United Kingdom | 1994 | Unclassified (15+)


Wed 6 Nov 2024

See below for additional related events

Assembled after Jarman’s death in early 1994, this evocative collage of Super 8 footage shot by Jarman over the course of his creative life provides fascinating insights into his creative process and his collaborations with figures like William S. Burroughs, Adam Ant, Genesis P-Orridge, Toya Wilcox and Tilda Swinton. Mostly consisting of home movies and behind-the-scenes footage shot between 1970 and 1986, it is also an extraordinarily intimate and unguarded document of the avant-garde, queer and punk scenes in Britain and features a mesmerising score by Brian Eno.

Presented in partnership with the Melbourne Queer Film Festival.
