Synopsis

A bold, offbeat biography of the great Viennese philosopher, Ludwig Wittgenstein, personalised in Derek Jarman’s unique style to address the politics and sexuality of the troubled intellectual.

Our take

Our SF Pride triple bill pays tribute to the late great Derek Jarman, whose wild twists on the British costume drama gave the genre a much needed injection of irreverent camp and shrewd wit. His stylized biopic of the 20th century philosopher is a theatrical marvel, featuring his muse Tilda Swinton!
