Inquiring Nuns

Inquiring Nuns

£3.99 (Discount available for Curzon Cinema Members)
Following its first ever UK cinema release at Curzon Cinemas this year - the film's 50th anniversary - discover this beloved but unknown gem of pure cinéma vérité, introduced here exclusively on Curzon Home Cinema by its director Gordon Quinn. 1967: two nuns stand on Chicago street corners asking passersby, ‘Are you happy?’ Powerful and disarming in its simplicity, their responses range from bemused, to amusing, to spiritual, to searching. Newly restored and featuring music by Philip Glass, 'Inquiring Nuns' is a brilliant time capsule of what was on America’s mind in 1967 (especially the Vietnam war) but also a thought-provoking documentary milestone that deserves to be better seen. Including interviews with Sister Marie Arné and Sister Mary Campion 40 years on from the original film. "Inquiring Nuns is a soothing balm for our age of 24/7 online hate" - Phil Hoad, The Guardian
