Film Description

An imaginative and loving appreciation of Derek Jarman, from filmmaker Isaac Julien (Looking for Langston, Young Soul Rebels) and actress Tilda Swinton, who appeared in many of Jarman's films, and who here acts as an executive producer, screenwriter, and narrator. This documentary is a very good introduction to both Jarman the man — a World War II baby, 1960s reveller, and mature artist from the 1970s until his death from AIDS in 1994 — and Jarman the multi-talented painter, theatre and film designer, author, activist, and filmmaker.
