Continuing our celebration of the centenary of the German publication of Ludwig Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus we invite you to join us for a special CineClub screening of Derek Jarman's Wittgenstein.

Written for Channel 4 by radical literary theorist Terry Eagleton and directed by Derek Jarman, Wittgenstein is a bold, offbeat biography, exploring the politics and sexuality of the great, troubled philosopher.

Exceeding the limitations of its miniscule budget, Wittgenstein is full of arresting visuals and bold performances from Tilda Swinton, Michael Gough, and Karl Johnson, who brilliantly captures Wittgenstein in all his torment and drama. It was to be Jarman’s penultimate film, and is infused with the sense of artistic adventure, intelligence and playfulness that characterised his life and work.

UK, 1993, 71mins, English, directed by Derek Jarman

Please sign up for this event on our website before 4pm on 6 May. You will receive a link & password via email on the day of the screening.
