1993. Great Britain. Directed by Derek Jarman. By the early 1990s, AIDS had ravaged many communities around the world; perhaps none so visibly as the creative community, which counted many gay men among its number. Derek Jarman, a pioneer of queer cinema, created Blue as a last testament to his life and work. A lush narrative soundscape transforms the pure blue image into a fantastic realm of spirituality and poetry. 76 min.
