Sebastiane is a 1976 Latin-language British historical thriller film written and directed by Derek Jarman and Paul Humfress. It portrays the events of the life of Saint Sebastian, including his iconic martyrdom by arrows. The film, which was aimed at a gay audience, was controversial for the homoeroticism portrayed between the soldiers and for being dialogued entirely in Latin.

Part of Queer Screens, a series of LGBTQ+ films programmed and introduced by Dr Joao Florencio (Art History and Visual Culture).
