Tate Modern Turbine Hall, £18, booking required

This unique screening presents Derek Jarman’s rarely seen early experimental super 8 films, made in the 1970s. Jarman (1942–94) is best known for his films Jubilee, 1977, arguably the first punk movie, Caravaggio,1986, and Blue, 1993. Focusing not on his feature films, but on his magical super 8 material, this exceptional screening includes Studio Bankside 1970, a poetic journey through Jarman’s studio, with introductions to the characters who frequented it, providing a snapshot of the artistic social scene in the pre-punk era and the urban surroundings of Bankside.
