Derek Jarman: Chroma

"Blue light. A Spectral light. Leni's full mooon falling through a crystal grotto in the High Dolomites. The villagers draw their curtains against this blue. Blue brings night with it. Once in a blue moon...

Tacitus tells us of a spectral tattooed army, the Pictish Britons nude in the colour of the Ethiopians, Caeruleus. Dark blue, not the sharp blue from the paint tube."

Chroma (Century, London, 1994)
