Plot.

The city of Rome was founded in AD 301. Sebastian, the captain of the palace guard, was demoted to the rank of common soldier by Emperor Diocletian because his fellow soldiers, weakened by their desires, turned to homosexual activities to satisfy their needs. Sebastian is the target of lust for the officer, but he rejects the man's advances multiple times. He was tortured, humiliated and ultimately killed because of his Christian faith.

Cast & Crew.

Wiki.

Sebastiane is a 1976 Latin-language British historical film directed by Derek Jarman and Paul Humfress and written by Jarman, Humfress and James Whaley. 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 having dialogue entirely in Latin.
