This Powell and Pressburger classic is set in a community of nuns high in the Himalayas. Their spiritual aims are ham- pered 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.

The filmmaking collaboration of English director Michael Powell and Hungarian-British screenwriter and producer Emeric Pressburger resulted in an unbroken run of some of the most insanely bril- liant films ever made on British soil. They called themselves The Archers and their commitment to alternative cinema was every bit as serious as subsequent filmmaking movements.

Producers: Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger Cast: Deborah Kerr, Jean Simmons, Flora Robson, Sabu
