Narrated by: Derek Jarman, Tilda Swinton, Nigel Terry, John Quentin
Evocative and emotionally resonant, the last great work from a true master of his art.
Removing the use of images completely, a luminous blue glow is the backdrop for a collage of sound, music and speech, during which Jarman contemplates his encroaching blindness and threatened mortality. As images disappear from his own vision, he considers how his life and work will disappear from public consciousness after his death. The films of Derek Jarman at EIFF 2011 have been programmed by our guest curator, Gus Van Sant.
