Blue / Glitterbug

A Derek Jarman double feature. "Blue" (1993, 75 mins) - A courageous personal testimony about his experiences with AIDS, Derek Jarman's final feature was hailed as a masterpiece. A blue screen provides the canvas for a remarkably rich and evocative soundtrack, featuring the voices of Tilda Swinton, Nigel Terry, John Quentin and Jarman himself. "Glitterbug" (1993, 53 mins) - A montage film of Derek Jarman's magnificent Super 8 footage from 1970 to 1986, with music specially composed by Brian Eno. 'In a way I think they're the centre of my film making. I find them for myself obviously as interesting, perhaps more interesting than the feature films.' DJ.
