    The Extended Derek Jarman Interview (69 Min.)
    An Introduction By Producer Colin MacCabe
Sebastiane - Jarman's feature film debut, a slyly lurid and exquisitely poetic historical drama about the martyrdom of St. Sebastian, lays bare the latent homoeroticism that has always lurked beneath the glossy surface of Hollywood biblical epics. A psycho-sexual hothouse of desire and religious longing, Sebastian is a visually bold work that is a milestone in modern queer cinema. The Tempest - Jarman adapts Shakespeare's last great work as an intricate comedy of magic and revenge that is at once faithful to the spirit of the play and a dazzling spectacle mixing Hollywood pastiche, high camp and gothic horror. War Requiem - "A stunning visual and serious musical treat" (variety), Jarman's 1989 film reunites British cinema's enfant terrible with his muse Tilda Swinton for a spectacular and moving interpretation of Benjamin Britten's groundbreaking 1961 orchestral masterpiece. Features Sir Laurence Olivier in his final screen appearance. Derek - In Isaac Julien's fascinating documentary, Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton personally conducts an intimate cinematic commemoration of the life, times and work of Derek Jarman. Includes clips from 17 Jarman films.
