Quantum Mechanics vs Einstein: Light Btwn Black Holes, Double Slit Experiment

In summary, if you create a double slit experiment with two black holes at the edges, light will be bent by gravity.

Quantum mechanics vs Einsteins theory of relativity:

How does light move between two black holes if we create a double slit experiment in front of the light? Do the light waves distribute themselves equally on the screen or does gravity distort light waves at the edges?

So just imagine doing a double slit experiment, but we have two black holes at the edges....

There is no conflict between QM and GR in this particular example. Light is bent in the presence of gravity, including the extreme gravity of a black hole.

If you want a double slit experiment, you may need three miniature black holes.

Can you draw a picture of this? Where is the source of light, relative to the first black hole? Where is the screen, relative to the second black hole? You can draw it by your hand and take a photo by a smart phone.
