Remembrance Sunday

WAR REQUIEM/Q&A Don Boyd

To coincide with Remembrance Day, Curzon Cinemas and Second Sight DVD have joined forces to present this specially remastered edition of director Derek Jarman’s highly acclaimed and poignant film War Requiem in the company of producer Don Boyd.

‘Jarman’s finest achievement’ Philip French, The Observer

WAR REQUIEM (PG)

Director: Derek Jarman

Composed & Conducted: Benjamin Britten

Starring: Tilda Swinton, Nathaniel Parker, Laurence Olivier

A visual evocation of the legendary recording of Benjamin Britten’s choral masterpiece which blended the Latin Mass of the Dead with the poignant poetry of Wilfred Owen, Britain’s greatest chronicler of the Great War. Dramatized scenes featuring spellbinding performances from an extraordinary cast, interwoven with poetic images and harrowing archive footage which all serve to recreate the haunting horrors of 20th century wars.
