(Dir. Derek Jarman, Great Britain, 1978, 106 min., English, color)

In Jubilee, legendary British filmmaker Derek Jarman channels political dissent and artistic daring into a revolutionary blend of history and fantasy, musical and cinematic experimentation, satire and anger, fashion and philosophy.  With its uninhibited punk petulance and sloganeering, Jubilee brings together many cultural and musical icons of the time, including Jordan, Toyah Willcox, Little Nell, Wayne County, Adam Ant, and Brian Eno (with his first original film score), to create a genuinely unique, unforgettable vision.  Ahead of its time and often frighteningly accurate in its predictions, it is a fascinating historical document and a stunning work of film art.
