Biopic 2010 13 mins
Director: Matthew Mishory
Delphinium is a stylized and lyrical coming-of-age portrait of Derek Jarman’s artistic, sexual, and political awakening in post-War England. Part biographical narrative, part experimental collage, part personal meditation on the most controversial and important modern British artist and activist, the film finds in Jarman’s childhood the stirrings of creative and individual epiphany that inspired a remarkable life.
Directed by Matthew Mishory and featuring a lush score by Arban and Steven Severin of Siouxsie and the Banshees, Delphinium was shot in part at Jarman's own Prospect Cottage in Dungeness. It features a special appearance by Keith Collins.
