Ethics in Film: Black Narcissus
December 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
This explosive work about the conflict between the spirit and the flesh is the epitome of the sensuous style of Michael Powell and Emeric Presburger. A group of nuns struggle to establish a convent in the Himalayas, while isolation, extreme weather, altitude, and culture clashes all conspire to drive the well-intentioned missionaries mad. A darkly grand film, Black Narcissus is one of the greatest achievements by two of cinema’s true visionaries.
Join us every 1st Friday for film screenings followed by a lively discussion of the ethical issues explored.
$5, includes snacks and refreshments (popcorn, beer, coffee, tea).
