Jason Wood – an introduction to Jarman’s films
Jason Wood is the Creative Director for Film and Culture at HOME. A visiting Professor at Manchester School of Art, he is also the author of multiple published works on cinema.
HOME and Manchester Art Gallery were working together to present a season of Jarman’s film to accompany the exhibition. Jason had curated a selection of films and events with Jarman collaborators and fans, which we will re-schedule when the exhibition takes place. Jason has written an introduction and overview of Jarman’s film output, originally commissioned by the BFI for a series of Blu Ray and DVD issues of Jarman’s work, which he has updated and shared with us here.
