Synopsis

A double bill of Derek Jarman films. 'Blue' is a blank blue screen that serves as the backdrop for a multi-layered soundtrack of music and voices, relating to Jarman's struggle with life, death and the AIDS virus. 'Glitterbug' is a montage of Super 8 footage shot by Jarman from 1970 to 1986. Part home-movie, part formal experimentation and part social documentary, with music by Brian Eno.
