Derek Jarman: Super 8

 

“This remarkable body of work contains some of the most evocative images from the filmmaker’s entire career.”

 

Derek Jarman: Super 8 by James Mackay. Derek Jarman was one of most influential filmmakers of the late twentieth century, transcending the avant-garde to make cult feature films such as Jubilee (1978) and Caravaggio (1986). He was a painter before venturing into the world of film, and a painter’s mentality permeates all his work, particularly his experiments in Super 8 film.

The Super 8 showed Jarman at his most visually courageous and creative, using rich colour and bold compositions, and experimenting with techniques such as superimposition and the use of prisms and filters. When Jarman died, he left his entire collection of ninety-two Super 8s to James Mackay, who has spent the last twenty years archiving, restoring, and digitizing them.

Here in Derek Jarman: Super 8, Mackay presents stills from these works, selected by artists and filmmakers who have engaged with or been influenced by Jarman. This remarkable body of work contains some of the most evocative images from the filmmaker’s entire career, accompanied by insightful commentaries from contributors such as Gus Van Sant, Tacita Dean, and Isaac Julien.
