November 1–December 18
Phyllis Wattis Theater
With a style that straddled the serious and the frivolous, the classical and the punk, fearless filmmaker and gay-rights activist Derek Jarman showed a brazen disregard for commercial and conservative values, earning him both derision from the establishment and adoration from his loyal fans. SFMOMA presents this comprehensive season of Jarman’s films—from his groundbreaking and controversial first, Sebastiane, to his minimalistic and elegiac last, Blue. Also featured is the biographical documentary Derek (directed by Isaac Julien), which includes an interview with Jarman shortly before he died.
1976, 86 min.
Saturday, November 1, 1 p.m.
$5 general; free for SFMOMA members or with museum admission (requires a free ticket, which can be picked up in the Haas Atrium). Double features: films offered on the same date are included in one ticket.
