Jarman’s oppositional cinema allied him with musicians who shared a similar aesthetic. Marianne Faithfull worked with him on a series of films to illustrate her dark album, Broken English (1979). Using Super-8 footage shot in Russia at the end of the Cold War, the filmmaker collaborated with Benjamin Britten, David Ball, and Genesis P-Orrige to complete Imagining October (1984), about the connections between the revolutionary spirit of the Soviet Union and that of Thatcherite Britain. Later, he was commissioned to create The Queen Is Dead, a series of 35mm promotional films for a project by the Smiths (1986). In 16mm and 35mm, 62 minutes.
