The British filmmaker, set designer, painter and author Derek Jarman is well-known to a wide audience, but his earliest films, made in Super-8, are only recently beginning to be retrieved. Made in the early 70s, and already proposing key Jarman themes of sexuality and Englishness, these diaristic shorts predate his first feature “Sebastiane” (1976) and are reproduced here as stills.
Derek Jarman, geb. 1942 in Northwood, England, gest. 1994 in London.
