Against a plain, unchanging blue screen, a densely interwoven soundtrack of voices, sound effects and music attempts to convey a portrait of Derek Jarman's literal and allegorical experiences with AIDS, while also exploring the meanings associated with the colour blue.

"Part audio play, diaristic testimonial and poetic elegy, Derek Jarman's masterpiece is a profoundly intimate, sensorial meditation of an artist's slow approach to the end of his life. Narrated by Jarman and his close collaborators, including Tilda Swinton, "Blue" envelops the viewer within Yves Klein's patented International Klein Blue and an incredible soundtrack by Simon Fisher Turner, Brian Eno, Coil, and Erik Satie. The effect is of pure transcendence, an immersive experience that interprets a soul resisting its body's physical disappearance through the creation of memory and imagination." (Andrei Tănăsescu)
