Derek Jarman - Moving Pictures of a Painter: Home Movies, Super 8 Films and Other Small Gestures by Martin Frey

The English painter, film-maker and writer Derek Jarman (1942??"1994) is mainly known
for his work in the medium of film, but he always saw himself primarily as a painter.
In this study of his lesser known home movies, Super 8 films and the ‘cinema of small
gestures?? that Jarman developed out of them, Martin Frey discusses numerous Super 8
films as well as the films THE LAST OF ENGLAND, IN THE SHADOW OF THE SUN and
THE ANGELIC CONVERSATION. He examines Jarman??s filming techniques and way of
working and also analyses influences from the fields of painting and literature, such as
Allen Ginsberg, Robert Rauschenberg, David Hockney and Yves Klein.
For Jarman, life and work represented an indivisible unity. Numerous autobiographical
elements from his works are thus considered in this volume: his repressed childhood and
adolescence in post-war England, his coming out and the liberated life of the seventies,
his struggle against the unequal treatment of homosexuals during the Thatcher area, his
dealing with his own HIV infection and finally his personal commitment to fighting
discrimination against people who are HIV-positive or who have already developed Aids.
