Director: Derek Jarman
UK, 1984, 78', DVD, color
No dialogue

In 1984, Derek Jarman was doing research for his friend Ron Peck (Nighthawks, 1978), who was working on a gangster movie to be set within London’s nightclub scene. Jarman was one of the earliest British filmmakers to experiment seriously with digital video, and in Will You Dance with Me? he found the format’s ghostly blurring of light and color perfectly matched to his subject. “I don’t know that I’ve seen dance better filmed,” BFI curator William Fowler has said of the footage.
