Caravaggio (1986) Directed by Derek Jarman

Presented by the Art Academy of Cincinnati

Doors at 7:00 PM, Screening at 7:30 PM

@ The Mini Microcinema - 1329 Main St.

Derek Jarman's most profound reflection on art, sexuality and identity retells the life of the celebrated 17th-century painter through his brilliant, nearly blasphemous paintings and his flirtations with the underworld. Caravaggio incorporates the painter's precise aesthetic into the movie's own visuals, while touching on all of Jarman's major concerns: history, homosexuality, violence and the relationship between painting and film. Caravaggio is probably the closest Derek Jarman ever came to making a mainstream film.  -Zeitgeist Films
