Blue, by Derek Jarman

Staff Pick

Jarman’s still powerful and timely 1993 jeremiad against the indifference of the political establishment during the AIDS crisis was originally a feature film. Written when he was suffering from AIDS-related illnesses, the text juxtaposes tender observations of everyday life with grand and mystical visions, creating a hallucinatory and prophetic invocation from a man who has seen his friends--indeed, his entire community--struggle with and succumb to AIDS.
