Director: Derek Jarman Drama, 1990, 95 mins
Filmed in the stark environs of Derek Jarman’s coastal home in the shadow of Dungeness power station, The Garden is a powerful and moving series of allegorical dreamscapes. His dreams transpose New Testament events into a contemporary context, examining repressive attitudes towards homosexuality, the AIDS crisis and exploring Jarman s own feelings towards the Church. Featuring a brilliant score by Simon Fisher-Turner, The Garden is a visual tour-de-force from the acclaimed director of Sebastiane and Jubilee .
Followed by a short video: Saintmaking: the canonisation of Derek Jarman by queer ‘nuns’ Link: https://wearevillage.org/shop/village-film-w26
