THE LAST OF ENGLAND
A film by Derek Jarman
'Mesmerising' Time Out
One of Derek Jarmans most personal and innovative films, The Last of England is a devastating vision of 80s Britain. Images of war and urban decay are intercut with Jarmans own childhood home movies, creating a shocking yet beautiful and poetic film with a much praised soundtrack featuring Diamanda Galas, Mayo Thompson, Andy Gill and Marianne Faithfull.
A powerful and haunting work from one of Britains most creative filmmakers.
