The Garden (1990)

Rated PG-13 95 min. 2019

The Garden was made in 1990 as Jarman was struggling with AIDS. Shot on Super8, 16mm and HI8 video, starring a young Tilda Swinton and featuring a sublime score by Simon Fisher Turner, The Garden is a visually stunning, deeply personal film about homosexuality, Christianity and persecution filmed at Jarman's coastal home in the shadow of a nuclear power station.
