Thanks to Peter:

Sebastiane in the upcoming Derek Jarman Blu-ray box set from the BFI contains the infamous erection footage (BBFC advice states There is a prolonged sex scene, which includes sight of an erect penis. There is also a scene showing a pagan ritual dance, in which men wearing giant fake phalluses appear to ejaculate white fluid over a male dancer's face and body.)

The erection was never officially censored by the BBFC for the film's original theatrical release. As Jarman later said: We hid it!......We shot the film in Academy [the 4x3 screen ratio of older films], but showed it to the censors with a widescreen mask on the projector. Sebastiane's hard-on was hidden below the frame-line, and they passed the film uncut. When we projected it in 4x3, the hard-on was still there!

The shots were, however, matted out from subsequent video releases and TV showings.

Jubilee is a 1978 UK drama by Derek Jarman.
With Jenny Runacre, Nell Campbell and Toyah Willcox. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

Cut by the BBFC for 1978 cinema release. Uncut on home video, 18 rated until 2001, and then 15 rated from 2014.  

By 2017, the script had to be censored for political correctness for a stage version. In the film, a character named Amyl Nitrate used her opening speech to say Hindley instantly became my hero when she was 15. She also said Hindley was a true artist because she knew how to make her desires a reality, and dismissed those who said her crimes were unimaginable because that showed the poverty of your imagination.

Director Chris Goode, who has adapted the script for its stage premiere, said the lines were in the original film to show how punks deliberately wanted to shock society and smash taboos. He initially resisted requests to take out the reference to Hindley but was 'convinced' to do so by a member of the senior artistic leadership of the Royal Exchange.

Derek Jarman Volume One: 1972-1986
5-disc Limited Edition Blu-ray box set

Jarman's multi-faceted work is inspirational in its fearlessness, yet remains touchingly personal. The dynamism of these features evokes comparison with the bold romanticism of directors like Ken Russell (an early champion) and Michael Powell, as well as artists Paul Nash and John Piper. But Jarman was also a subversive force in film. Beginning with his psychedelic debut feature, In the Shadow of the Sun (1972-1974), then came the provocative Jubilee (1978), the evocative Shakespeare adaptation The Tempest (1979) and The Angelic Conversation (1985), in which he invoked Elizabethan occultist Dr John Dee and explored alchemical imagery, a subject in which he was well versed. In Sebastiane (1976) and Caravaggio (1986) he revived key gay and homo-erotic figures from the past with edgy and unmistakable style.

Derek Jarman's first six feature films have all been newly scanned at 2K from original film elements and are presented in this lavish box set alongside an exciting array of new and archival extras drawn from Jarman's archive of workbooks and papers held in BFI Special Collections. Newly interviewed exclusively for this box set are some of the people who worked on these films; punk legend Jordan, producer and filmmaker Don Boyd, production designer Christopher Hobbs and artist filmmaker John Scarlett-Davis.

  • 2016 Bounty Films R2 DVD at UK Amazon released on 7th November 2016

There are no censorship issues with this film

Promotional Material

The director travels the night in order to lead an endless marathon of sexual encounters, drug-taking, alcohol and casual friendships and finally finding the difference in the incessant flow of a routine that works as rebuttal and conjuring of ordinary life. Castro's images give out an aura of unsuspected truth and beauty and assault the viewer with a strength that most films put aside, perhaps out of modesty, or maybe for lack of courage. The camera glued to the body, out-of-focus shots and ambient sound shape an impious journey whose destination could be the brief encounter with one's own ghosts, without no epiphanies or moral commentary.

Promotional Material

Théo and Hugo encounter each other’s bodies one night in a Paris sex club. Wanting to know more about each other, they leave the club and drift down the deserted streets of nocturnal Paris.

Suddenly they find themselves confronted by a sense of reality that wipes out their freedom and lends each step an existential helplessness. Do they want to know more about each other? Will their trust be rewarded? What are their expectations?

Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau (Cockles & Muscles, Drôle de Félix, Born in 68) deliver their most ambitious film yet, displaying a consummate sensitivity in bringing us closer to two men as they strive for intimacy in spite of being stalled by their insecurity.
