“Caravaggio” is a visually striking portrayal of the infamous artist, directed by the equally bold Derek Jarman. Set in 17th-century Rome but unmistakably made in the 1980s, the film captures Caravaggio’s rebellious spirit as he immortalizes societal outcasts and challenges his Catholic patrons with daring depictions of biblical scenes. Nigel Terry leads the cast as Caravaggio, with Sean Bean and newcomer Tilda Swinton delivering captivating performances. Jarman infuses the film with his trademark artistry, blending historical accuracy with anachronistic elements and pushing narrative boundaries. Through stunning recreations of Caravaggio’s paintings and baroque romances, the film celebrates the artist’s provocative legacy, inviting audiences to explore beauty in unconventional ways. The screening event promises an immersive experience, complete with free drinks, and live entertainment by violinist, Lindsey Peavler.
