Part of the program

While applying his production-designing expertise, Jarman co-wrote and co-directed his first narrative feature with film editor Humfress, putting an exceedingly homoerotic spin on historical drama. Roman soldier Leonard Treviglio’s Christian beliefs get him reassigned to a detail overseen by centurion Barney James, who falls for the conscientious objector even though punishment must be meted out. The music score is by Brian Eno.
