The Passion of Joan of Arc

PG Biography

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for The Passion of Joan of Arc at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

Spiritual rapture and institutional hypocrisy come to stark, vivid life in one of the most transcendent masterpieces of the silent era. Chronicling the trial of Joan of Arc in the days leading up to her execution, Danish master Carl Theodor Dreyer depicts her torment with startling immediacy, employing an array of techniques including expressionistic lighting, interconnected sets, and painfully intimate close-ups to immerse viewers in her subjective experience. Anchoring Dreyer's audacious formal experimentation is a legendary performance by Renée Falconetti, whose haunted face channels both the agony and the ecstasy of martyrdom. THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC is widely regarded as a landmark of cinema, especially for its production, Dreyer's direction and Falconetti's performance, often listed as one of the finest in cinema history.
