Black Narcissus

Directed by Emeric Pressburger & Michael Powell

Shot by Jack Cardiff, BLACK NARCISSUS is one of the most stunningly beautiful 3-strip Technicolor films ever made, winning an Oscar for cinematography. Its beauty is not gratuitous but at the service of this sensual story about an order of nuns living in the highest Himalayas, driven mad by the scents and sights of their surroundings. Absolutely amazing in every sense, don’t miss this new, restored 35mm print.
