Milwaukee LGBT Film/Video Festival presents…
Half waking dream and half fiery polemic, The Garden (1990) 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.
(Derek Jarman, UK, English 95min, 1990, DCP)
