Two young footballers share a hotel room the night before a key match. Out of nowhere, one kisses the other. The emotional impact of this ‘pass’ plays out through the next ten years of their lives – a decade of success and failure, secrets and lies, in a sporting world where image is everything.
WILL YOU DANCE WITH ME?
Director: Derek Jarman
2014 / 78’
Screening: 28.10, 20:00, "Kyiv" Cinema
Screening presented by Brian Robinson – BFI Archive Comms Manager and BFI Flare Programmer
Twenty years after the death of Derek Jarman, a heretofore unknown film of him comes to light. On 5th September 1984, Ron Peck and Mark Ayres invited Derek Jarman to join them in recording some improvisations at Benjy’s nightclub in London, as a part of the early experimental work for their feature film EMPIRE STATE.
