England’s most controversial filmmaker and director, Derek Jarman’s story stretches from his childhood in postwar Britain and art school days to the making of acclaimed films, including Sebastiane, Jubilee, Caravaggio, and Blue. A chronicle of sexual fear and repression, the devastation of disease, and inimitable courage and grace, this is an honest and brilliant tribute to Jarman’s uncompromising life and art.
