Synopsis:
Derek is a glorious, yet fitting remembrance of one of independent film's most important artists, Dered Jarman. It was lovingly crafted by artist filmmaker Isaac Julien, who assembled a moving collage of rare home movies, film clips and interviews, as well as a cinematic love letter from actor Tilda Swinton written a decade after Jarman’s death, The film tells the story of Jarman’s life and chronicles everyday England from the 1960s to the early 1990s. It also includes clips of Jarman’s feature-length and Super-8 films. Swinton’s letter serves as the poetic overlay, telling the truth about the life Jarman led and the cultural abyss left by his absence.
Painter, author, gay militant, AIDS activist and, above all, filmmaker, Derek Jarman was one of Britain’s fest-loved and most original artists who touched the lives of everyone he met.
