On Thursday, June 22nd at 8 p.m., the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas will present Black Narcissus, the story of a group of nuns who struggle to establish a convent in the Himalayas. Temptation comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors, but never has it been illustrated so dramatically as was the case with this 1947 Oscar winning film.
For Bahamians, it’s an opportunity to screen a classic movie and ponder the question of what happens when one's religious beliefs conflict with personal desire. The film is an explosive work about the conflict between the spirit and the flesh.
The screening is free and open to the public. We will have popcorn on hand for sale. Come out and spend this wonderful summer evening with us.
