Directed by Derek Jarman, Part II: Apparatus
Part of Commemorating Derek Jarman
“A world of magic and ritual.” —Derek Jarman
Returning to experimentation with Super 8 film, The Angelic Conversation transforms the apparatus of the moving image into a sequence of photographic forms—a dream world in which the male figurative pose is the locus of desire. The soundtrack features music by Coil and Benjamin Britten as well Dame Judi Dench’s narration of 14 Shakespeare sonnets. 1985, 35mm, 78 minutes.
