Sebastiane

Derek Jarman’s remarkable debut turns the legend of the martyred saint into a reverie about homoerotic desire.

Derek Jarman’s remarkable debut – with its copious nudity and its Latin dialogue subtitled in English – reworks the legend of the martyred saint so that Sebastian is a Roman soldier spiritually and sexually at odds with his colleagues in a remote garrison where boredom and erotic intrigue have become the norm. Peter Middleton’s camerawork and Brian Eno’s music enhance the aura of homoeroticism.
