Film : The Garden (1990)- Derek Jarman

The Garden (1990) - Derek Jarman

Derek Jarman once compared his garden and the bleak landscape around his house in Dungeness, Britain’s only desert, to the Garden of Eden. In his film ‘The Garden’ this landscape forms the backdrop for a loose narrative that focuses on homsexuality and Christianity - connected to Jarman’s own subjective musings on these subjects - tempered by the reality of his own mortality, coming after his HIV/AIDS diagnosis.
