Following our packed-out screening of Black Narcissus at the start of the month we thought we'd shine a light on its legendary Oscar-winning cinematographer Jack Cardiff who also shot two other Powell & Pressburger films we've shown at the club, A Matter of Life and Death and The Red Shoes. 

Cardiff's career spanned an incredible nine of moving picture's first ten decades and his work behind the camera altered the look of films forever through his use of Technicolor photography. 

Craig McCall's passionate film reveals a unique figure in British and international cinema.
