A PRODUCTION OF THE ARCHERS: THE FILMS OF MICHAEL POWELL AND EMERIC PRESSBURGER
Double Feature!
THE RED SHOES / BLACK NARCISSUS

Two beautifully conceived romances from filmmaking duo Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger.

THE RED SHOES
1948, Park Circus/MGM, 133 min, UK, Dir: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

A delirious, shimmering Technicolor dream of a movie, THE RED SHOES stars Scottish dancer-turned-actress Moira Shearer (in her film debut) as an aspiring ballerina caught between the maniacal, domineering passion of impresario Anton Walbrook and the equally-controlling love of composer Marius Goring. An awesome, superbly fluid blending of dance, a Golden Globe-winning score and Jack Cardiff’s Technicolor cinematography.


BLACK NARCISSUS
1947, MGM Repertory, 99 min, UK, Dir: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s exquisite (and surprisingly erotic) drama of spiritual devotion and earthly temptation stars the luminous Deborah Kerr as a nun nearly overwhelmed by the physical beauty of her new Himalayan home, and the worldly charms of rugged David Farrar. Widely hailed as one of the most visually stunning films ever made (courtesy of Jack Cardiff’s Oscar-winning cinematography). Co-starring Sabu, Jean Simmons, Flora Robson. "Color, sex, exotic locations - it was a big hit in austerity-stricken England!" - Michael Powell
