Local film expert Terry Ebinger returns to Cinema Numina to present Powell & Pressburger's "I Know Where I'm Going" (1945). This cinematic gem locates us in the mysterious realm where fate, true love and destiny meet. In classic mythic fashion, a willful-yet-loveable protagonist struggles against invisible forces—the forces of soul—intent on defeating her best laid plans. All around her, the unruly sea mirrors the unpredictable wildness of her own heart's affections. The film is deeply infused in the spirit of place, and is steeped in the every day poetry of the blessings, curses, legends and traditions of the Scottish Isles.
Of this film, Raymond Chandler once said, "I've never seen a picture which smelled of the wind and rain in quite this way nor one which so beautifully exploited the kind of scenery people actually live with, rather than the kind which is commercialized as a show place." Film critic Barry Norman included this film among his 100 greatest films of all time.
