THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC

(La passion de Jeanne d’Arc)

Directed by CARL THEODOR DREYER/Denmark/France/1928/1hr, 54mins.

Starring Renée Falconetti, Eugène Silvain, André Berley


Cine-Miroir Magazine, 1928, from the MBC Archive.

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 hours leading up to her execution, Danish master Carl Theodor Dreyer depicts her torment with startling immediacy, employing an array of techniques—expressionistic lighting, interconnected sets, 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.

“It’s difficult to envision a purer, more pared-down work of cinematic art than Carl Theodor Dreyer’s wrenching, intensely focused 1928 The Passion of Joan of Arc.”-Criterion Collection

PIONEERING SHORT FILMS

TONIGHT’S SHORT:

FILMSTUDIE

Directed by HANS RICHTER/Germany/1926/7mins.

Hans Richter was the foremost avant-garde filmmaker and artist in Germany in the 1920s, who aside from the French Surrealists, created Dadaist short films and abstract works that are legendary, including this one featuring floating eyeballs and a flock of seagulls.
