I seem to remember "The Last of England" as using
Super 8, Video and 35mm film together and then all
printed up to 35mm.

The Angelic Conversation, is I think entirely Super 8
and was converted to 35mm through some sort of DIY
optical process.

I expect there are 35mm prints out there but I would
also expect them to be exceptionally rare!

One of my favourite Jarman films "The Art of Mirrors"
was printed up from Super8 to 16mm, so in theory it
might be possible to get hold of a 16mm print of that!

It's a film more heavy on the Kenneth Anger influence
than his later films (not that his later stuff wasn't
also heavily influenced by Kenneth too) but it also
has that feeling of things in decay ditching the
beauty of Kenneth Anger's work for a more derelict and
empty landscape. Something you get to see more of in
Jubilee and the last of england.

Must rush off now, shouldn't be here at all as you
might imagine! ;)
