Derek Jarman’s The Garden, BFI on London’s Southbank: 21-27 June

June 21, 2019 @ 8:00 am - June 27, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

The BFI on London’s Southbank are hosting a special screening of The Garden – Derek Jarman’s 1990 film, starring Tilda Swinton, Johnny Mills, Philip  MacDonald, and Pete Lee-Wilson.

Close to a nuclear power station, inside his modest, sparsely-furnished home on the barren, windswept Dungeness coastline, Derek Jarman dreams… This intimate insight into Jarman’s inner world was beautifully crafted through the innovative manipulation of Super 8 film, laid down on to tape and then 35mm.

Shifting from the personal to the political, it culminates in a near mythic exploration of sexual repression at the end of the 20th century, movingly utilising a cast of iconic, religious figures that include Jesus, Judas and the Madonna. Increasingly ill by this point, Jarman faces his mortality with poetry and dignity.
