War Requiem (Derek Jarman; U.K., 1988)

Sunday, Jul 27 7:10p

Jarman’s nonnarrative lament to the tragedy of war opens with an elderly soldier in his screen farewell, reciting Wilfred Owen. Throughout the film—the soldier’s remembrances?—we hear Benjamin Britten’s famed oratorio, “War Requiem,” which draws on Owen’s poetry, while witnessing Jarman’s poetic cinematic response. Tableaux detailing Owen’s life and death at twenty-five in the trenches are interwoven with archival footage of war’s devastation from World War I onward.
