Special World AIDS Day Screening! Free – open to all

The Garden
(Derek Jarman, UK, New 2K Restoration, 95min., 1990)

Half waking dream and half fiery polemic, The Garden was 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.
