This book gives detailed and original critical readings of all eleven of Derek Jarman's feature-length films, arguing that he occupies a major and influential place in European and world cinema rather than merely being a cult figure. It places particular emphasis on the importance of Renaissance art and literature for Jarman, and emphasizes his interest in Jungian psychology. Wymer shows how Jarman used his films to take his audience with him on an inner journey in search of the self, while remaining fully aware of the dangers of such a journey.
Derek Jarman's films explore the possibilities and limitations of same-sex love and self-expression during various historical eras, ranging from ancient Egypt to present times. His work covers a millennium of sexual repression and efforts to escape it. Jarman provides us with a cinematic history of people whose homoerotic passions had a major impact on western civilization in religion, art, politics, philosophy, and war. This book provides background information on each of Jarman's fifteen scripts and films. The chapters are "program notes" to his films from a historical perspective. An interpretation of Jarman's intentions, gleaned from the director's writings and works about him, is also provided. This work reveals Jarman's importance as a keen student of the limits of historical knowledge, and delineates the role of history in inspiring change or preserving inertia in the present struggle against homophobia.
Der englische Maler, Filmemacher und Schriftsteller Derek Jarman (1942 - 1994) wurde vor allem über das Medium Film bekannt, verstand sich jedoch selbst immer primär als Maler. In dieser Annäherung an seine weniger bekannten Home Movies, Super-8-Filme und das daraus entwickelte "Kino der kleinen Gesten" bespricht Martin Frey zahlreiche Super-8-Filme sowie die Filme THE LAST OF ENGLAND, IN THE SHADOW OF THE SUN und THE ANGELIC CONVERSATION. Er untersucht Derek Jarmans Aufnahmetechniken und seine Arbeitsweise und analysiert Einflüsse aus Malerei und Literatur, wie z.B. von Allen Ginsberg, Robert Rauschenberg, David Hockney und Yves Klein. Leben und Arbeit stellten für Jarman eine untrennbare Einheit dar. Zahlreiche autobiografische Elemente aus seinen Arbeiten finden daher Berücksichtigung in dieser Arbeit: die unterdrückte Kindheit und Jugend im Nachkriegsengland, sein Coming Out und das befreite Leben während der siebziger Jahre, sein Kampf gegen die Ungleichbehandlung Homosexueller während der Ära Thatcher, der Umgang mit der eigenen HIV-Infektion und späteren Erkrankung und sein persönlicher Einsatz gegen die Diskriminierung HIV-Infizierter und an Aids erkrankter Menschen.
The freewheeling life and career of this activist independent filmmaker is chronicled here, with details about his drug use, his art school experience at the Slade, his sexual life, and his groundbreaking work as the director of Caravaggio, Sebastiane, and other great films. Reprint.
