Remembrance of Things Fast by John Marbury, Projections by Derek Jarman

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Tonight we preview two of the hottest titles in this year’s Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. Remembrance of Things Fast (1993) is the latest personal work by John Maybury. This director of award-winning music videos is also, sadly, one of the British gay cinema’s best-kept secrets. His avant-garde work unites state-of-the art video effects with a powerfully perverse imagination. Remembrance stars Tilda Swinton and a barely recognizable Rupert Everett in a darkly humorous glimpse of media fiction and sexual truth. Derek Jarman’s lyrical film Projections (1989) was made for the Pet Shop Boys’ 1989 Tour. This will be its U.S. premiere. Co-presented with the 18th San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival.
