The Angelic Conversation

Derek Jarman’s mystical transfiguration of the English landscape is also a beautifully poetic ode to gay love.

The Angelic Conversation (1985)

Shakespeare’s sonnets, read by Judi Dench, are set to a gentle score from queer industrialists ‘Coil’, while ritual actions that celebrate the body are simply and touchingly performed by men along the Dorset coastline. This very tender non-narrative piece was Jarman’s personal favourite.
