FRIDAY, JUNE 21 - 7:30 PM with introduction from film critic Melissa Anderson

Twenty years after his untimely death, a heretofore unknown Derek Jarman film has come to light: discovered by friend Ron Peck, Jarman’s scrappy documentary was shot on location inside Benjy's, a now closed gay nightclub in East London. Originally shot as experimental B-roll for Peck’s EMPIRE STATE (1987), this uncut 78 minutes includes hot cuts from Frankie Goes to Hollywood, among others.
