SCREENING: ‘Glitterbug’

Electric Palace Cinema

15 / 60mins / Derek Jarman / 1994 / UK

A stunning collage of ecstatic Super-8 fragments, this is a loving tribute to Derek Jarman posthumously assembled from his prolilific filming of everyday events. Jarman’s vibrant photography combined with dynamic cutting reveals glimpses into his life, from London streets to Spanish countryside—with visions of dances, performances, intimate moments and quiet observations set to a mesmerizing score by Brian Eno.

Especially touching are the sequences with longtime muse Tilda Swinton, her joyful, intimate interaction with the camera a testimony to their devoted friendship.

Followed by Q&A with Ben Gibson (producer of ‘Wittgenstein’), Richard Heslop (filmmaker and camera operator on ‘The Last of England’) and Rebecca E Marshall to discuss ‘Film as Diary.’
