Synopsis

In this melodrama, a group of nuns attempt to set up a school and hospital in an old building on top of a mountain in the Himalayas. Their leader, Sister Clodagh, has never been in a position of authority before, and struggles to keep control in the face of natural disasters, as well as her repressed passions inspired by Dean, the English agent of the local ruler. The women are torn between the spiritual and the physical - leading to turmoil, and even madness. Hugely controversial at the time of release, the film remains provocative to this day. From iconic British directors Powell and Pressburger, the film contains lavish production values and cinematography that continue to impress.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
