"An extraordinary melodrama " Guardian ★★★★

We are delighted that critic, writer and historian Pamela Hutchinson (author of the BFI Classics guide to THE RED SHOES) has recorded an exclusive introduction to our shows of Powell and Pressburger's acclaimed BLACK NARCISSUS.

Don't miss the new documentary about the iconic filmmakers that made the celebrated Black Narcissus - MADE IN BRITAIN: THE FILMS OF POWELL AND PRESSBURGER - showing at Riverside Studios from 17 May.

This Powell and Pressburger classic is set in a community of nuns high in the Himalayas. Their spiritual aims are hampered by the arrival of a beautiful native girl and a young general. As the two elope together, the nuns are left attributing blame to each other and, when a young child dies in their care, tensions begin to increase.
