"Blue is the last of iconoclastic queer filmmaker Derek Jarman’s 12 features, completed only four months before his death and after his vision had been subsumed by constant blue light. The film's continuous blue screen becomes an absorbing canvas for audiences' visions, as Jarman's poetic, angry, wistful and sometimes humorous accounts of his illness create an atmospheric wall of sound. For me, the collective experience of viewing this film in a theater is unmatched."
—Matt Wolf

This screening will be introduced by Matt Wolf, as part of the series QUEER/ART/FILM organized by Adam Baran and Ira Sachs.
