Derek Jarman’s THE GARDEN (1990) – New 2K Restoration
Sunday, December 1:
Special World AIDS Day Screening! Free – open to all
Half waking dream and half fiery polemic, The Gardenwas born of director Jarman’s rage over continued anti-gay discrimination and the sluggardly response to the AIDS crisis. Among the visual splendors and outrages unfurled in this kaleidoscopic film: an over-the-top Hollywood-style musical number; nightmare images of tar-and-feather queer persecution; and footage of the particularly menacing-looking nuclear power plant that overlooks Jarman’s own garden, his personal and sustaining oasis. Featuring Jarman’s regular collaborator Tilda Swinton.
