Description

Details

Despite passing away in 1994 at the age of just 52, the legacy of the iconoclastic filmmaker Derek Jarman lives on, and his ground-breaking and highly influential work has lost none of its relevance or impact.

Inspirational in its fearlessness, his multi-faceted work remains touchingly personal. The dynamism of his features evokes comparison with the like of Ken Russell and Michael Powell, as well as artists Paul Nash and John Piper.

This second of two limited edition Blu-ray collections brings together Jarman’s last six features, made in the prolonged burst of creativity and political activism that followed his HIV diagnosis in 1987, ranging from the audacious anger of The Last of England (1987) to the astonishing experimentation of Blue (1993), and concluding with Jarman’s posthumously-released elegy to Super 8, Glitterbug (1994).

The features have been scanned at 2K from original film elements and are presented here alongside hours of additional material.
