Boston. May, 2017

On view at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, Derek Jarman's film 'Blue,' a rumination on life and death, health and disease from the acclaimed filmmaker who died of AIDS after a long battle. The screen remains as you see it, blue, as the audio offers a mix of conversation, sound effects, diatribes, you name it. People walked in and out of the gallery where 'Blue' was being shown, taking in as much as they wanted or could.

  1. I never watched Blue, but saw some Jarman movies and read some of his books. In the 80s he was one of my gurus, for sure.
