The Last Of England (Original Score) - #PalaceFilmFest




Start Time: 16:00


Director: Derek Jarman, United Kingdom, 1993, 79 mins

A Brexit Special: Tilda Swinton stars in Cult queer film director Derek Jarmans personal commentary on the decline of his country in a language closer to poetry than prose. A dark meditation on London under Thatcher. In 1987, in a world where where homosexuality and AIDs victims were looked down upon, Derek Jarman acted as a filmic spokesperson for those who remained marginalised. The Last of England is an angrily poetic, personal portrayal of a country that he saw, was in ruins. Through the experimental form, through the post-apocalyptic depiction of the country, Dereks film dismantles the establishment and highlights the horrors of modern-day Britain through a dream-like state.
