About The Passion of Joan of Arc

Year Released:
Danish auteur Carl Theodor Dreyer’s stunning depiction of Joan of Arc’s trial and sentencing was thought to be lost forever until a complete print was miraculously found in 1981. Maria Falconetti’s performance, framed almost entirely in close-up, is heartbreaking and harrowing. Rudolph Maté’s cinematography is nothing short of masterful. Often regarded as the greatest work of silent cinema, The film still maintains its power to elicit a complex combination of emotion and artistry that transcends human language. Archival 35mm print is being provided courtesy of the Academy Film Archive and the Danish Film Institute. (35mm presentation)

Live piano accompaniment provided by Philip Carli.
