Description:

(Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger, 1947, United Kingdom, 35mm, 100 min.)

One of the glories of Technicolor cinema, “Black Narcissus” focuses on a group of Anglican nuns who live in a convent high in the Himalayas. The exotic locale has an almost mystical influence on the sisters, kindling both romantic and carnal releases that threaten their mission, their state of mind and their way of life.
