Repression and eroticism mingle on-screen in this pair of films about nuns struggling against feelings of lust and uncertainty. Black Narcissus stands as a classic for its stunning cinematography and rich color, adding drama to the growing tension among a group of isolated nuns in the Himalayas, while Damned If You Don't uses black-and-white film to present a more modern tale of scandal: the lesbian seduction of a nun.

$7 general; $5 SFMOMA members, students, and seniors. Tickets are available at the Museum (with no surcharge) or online.
