DAVID STRATTON’S GREAT BRITAIN RETRO FILM FESTIVAL
presents
BLACK NARCISSUS (1947)

STUNNINGLY RESTORED IN DIGITAL.

“This Michael Powell-Emeric Pressburger ad- aptation of a novel by Rumer Godden is set in India but was filmed almost entirely on elaborate and beautiful sets constructed in a British film studio. The story of a convent located high in the Himalayas where frus- tration and jealousy begin to take hold is as timeless as ever, and the fine cast (Deborah Kerr, Flora Robson, Kathleen Byron and Jean Simmons among them) brings distinction to an intriguing story compellingly told.” DAVID STRATTON.

“One of the most breathtaking colour films ever made.” LEONARD MALTIN.

“One of the greatest experiences I have had with film is viewing the restored Black Narcissus projected on a massive screen” MARTIN SCORCESE

“Run, don’t walk to see this 1947 classic restored… brings a sugar-rush of pleasure.” PETER BRADSHAW
THE GUARDIAN.
