Black Narcissus

Running time: 101 mins


A group of nuns open a makeshift convent in the foothills of the Himalayas, but soon find their vows challenged in this new, exotic environment. Deborah Kerr’s Sister Clodagh has a spiritual crisis, while a fellow nun, brilliantly played by Kathleen Byron, becomes erotically obsessed with a British agent, leading to an unforgettable ending.

Showing as part of the BFI season, Cinema Unbound: The Creative Worlds of Powell & Pressburger.
