Derek Jarman made his debut as director with this story of the life of St. Sebastian, the martyred roman soldier who was sent into exile and tortured. A poetic exploration of sexuality, the film ( in Latin language with English subtitles ) is beautifully shot against a scorched desert landscape.

The film earned a cult status after it's release in 1976 and when it was finally given a UK television broadcast 10 years later, its' depiction of male nudity and graphic homoerotic content still proved controversial. "Sebastiane" set the tone for Jarman's uncompromising, highly personal and original style of filmmaking.
