Focus #3 Isaac Julien
in progress

Derek, Isaac Julien, 2008, digital, colour, sound, 78 min, VOSE.
This poetic documentary introduces us to the life of the British filmmaker, artist and writer Derek Jarman (1942–1994) through the use of archive footage. It was made in collaboration with Tilda Swinton and focuses on the one-day interview Jarman gave to Colin McCabe during the 1980s.

From Sebastiane (1976) to Blue (1992), Jarman’s films constantly ask questions about time and art as seen from his own context, a time when gay liberation and AIDS came to the fore. Possibly one of the most relevant figures of queer cinema, Jarman died as a result of AIDS in 1994.
