(Jamil Dehlavi, 1992)
Release date: 19 August 2024
Standard Edition Blu-ray

A Western couple (played by Melissa Leo and James Wilby) working in Pakistan visit an unconventional holy shrine to harness its spiritual powers to help them conceive a child. There, they are lavished with the attentions of the shrine’s leader (an exceptional performance from Zia Mohyeddin – Lawrence of Arabia, Khartoum) and her followers, but their methods and motives are not all that they seem, and the couple’s lives are plunged into darkness.

This ravishing, unsettling film from director Jamil Dehlavi (Born of Fire, Jinnah) is a deeply personal work which raises questions of cultural and sexual identity, religious fanaticism and the abuse of power.
