War Requiem + intro

This event is being sold at full capacity, with no social distancing measures in place.

An extraordinary visual evocation of Benjamin Britten’s choral and orchestral masterpiece, War Requiem sees Jarman draw together powerful, poetic images, and coax strong performances from Laurence Olivier (in his last ever role), Tilda Swinton and other familiar faces.

Jarman intersperses these sequences with harrowing archival footage illustrating the true horrors of war. A haunting and shocking vision.
