An experimental film staring Tilda Swinton from one of Britains most important directors, with a fresh live score.
An apocalyptic roar of a movie, Derek Jarman's dizzying THE LAST OF ENGLAND is a lament for the country he once knew and what he feared it would become. A kaleidoscopic view of his country's culture and history, filled with rage at Margaret Thatcher's conservative reign and haunted by the continuing scourge of AIDS, the movie is both deeply personal and grimly historical, and is undoubtedly one of the most important British films of all time. Experience this unique screening with a live score from artists Joe Summers, Rosa Irwin-Clark and Thomas Summers.
