Derek Jarman's Blue


The Getty Center

Experience Derek Jarman's extraordinary film Blue, a feature-length poetic mediation on color, death, and the void. Presented outdoors on the Getty's Garden Terrace overlooking sweeping views of Los Angeles, the film's projection of pure monochrome blue is set against the deepening night sky. This unique screening event includes a surround-sound experience of Jarman's courageous and moving text narrated by Tilda Swinton, Nigel Terry, and John Quentin, and the exceptional ambient musical soundtrack by Simon Fisher Turner with Brian Eno, Coil, and others.
