Caravaggio screening + book launch
One of the most successful films by iconoclastic filmmaker Derek Jarman, Caravaggio (1986), will be screening at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 21st, at The Plaza Theatre in Calgary. The film helped launch the careers of Tilda Swinton, Sean Bean, and Robbie Coltraine, and its title character has been coined by Newsweek as "a bold, quirky Caravaggio in pagan and poetic glory."
The screening event will happen in conjunction with the book launch for Derek Jarman's Angelic Conversations by Jim Ellis, who will introduce the film and lead discussion afterward.
