THE CHILDHOOD OF JOAN OF ARC

Directed by BRUNO DUMONT/France/2017/1hr, 45mins.

With Lise Leplat Prudhomme, Jeanne Voisin, Lucile Gauthier

A MUSICAL FROM THE DIRECTOR of L’IL QUINQUIN & SLACK BAY!


France, 1425. In the midst of the Hundred Years’ War, the young Jeannette, at the still tender age of 8, looks after her sheep in the small village of Domremy.

One day, she tells her friend Hauviette how she cannot bear to see the suffering caused by the English. Madame Gervaise, a nun, tries to reason with the young girl, but Jeannette is ready to take up arms for the salvation of souls and the liberation of the Kingdom of France. Carried by her faith, she will become Joan of Arc.

(In French with English subtitles)

OFFICIAL SELECTION: Cannes Film Festival Director’s Fortnight

Karlovy Vary Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival

“Bruno Dumont’s new feature Jeannette, l’enfance de Jeanne d’Arc MARKS AN UNEXPECTED AND NEAR PERFECT SYNTHESIS OF THE FRENCH ICONOCLAST’S MANY DISPARATE INTERESTS AND OBSESSIONS.”-Cinema Scope: Jordan Cronk

“One of the true UFOs I have encountered in my ten years of Cannes attendance. So aberrant and ruthless is its pursuit of new forms of poetry, luminance and madness that it can be (and very much has been) confused for cretinism itself.” -Filmmaker: Blake Williams
