LA PASSION DE JEANNE D'ARC
France | 1928 | Carl Theodor Dreyer
By and large, moviegoers who saw Carl Dreyer’s silent masterpiece on the big screen last December, with Richard Einhorn’s 1994 oratorio “Voices of Light” on the soundtrack, found it an overwhelming experience. So we’re bringing it back. Voted the ninth best movie of all time in a 2012 Sight & Sound poll of international film critics and curators, this visually stunning re-creation of the heresy trial of the 15th-century French freedom fighter is based on actual court transcripts. The work is celebrated for its stark, stunning close-ups, and for Renée Falconetti’s sublime portrayal of Joan (which critic Pauline Kael called “maybe the finest performance ever recorded on film”). “One of the most staggeringly intense films ever made…Magisterial cinema…Almost unbearably moving.” –Time Out Film Guide. Subtitles. DCP. 82 min.
