"Blue" came at the end of 15 years of feature filmmaking for Jarman, including true queer classics like "Sebastiane," "Caravaggio" and "Edward II." But if you're unfamiliar with his work at all, do yourself a big favor and make today a timely introduction. You can watch "Blue" below over a series of YouTube clips, and all almost all of his films here via Fandor (which is a wonderful site well worth the $10/month cost) or if you're in the UK a half dozen of them on the BFI's website. Also notable for those in London, tonight the London Review Bookshop is hosting a launch event for a facsimile edition of Jarman's only poetry collection. More info on that here.
Whatever you do, whatever your relationship is and was with Jarman's work, do try and take a moment today to commemorate him in some little way.
