Benedict Drew, ‘Heads May Roll’ (2014)
Derek Jarman‘s ‘Blue’ (1993)
Blue is Jarman’s final feature film, released four months before his death from AIDS-related complications. The disease had already rendered him partially blind at the time of the film’s release.
The film was his last testament as a film-maker, and consists of a single shot of saturated blue colour filling the screen, as background to a soundtrack where Jarman’s and some of his favourite actors’ narration describes his life and vision.
