“Dreyer’s most universally acclaimed masterpiece remains one of the most staggeringly intense films ever made.” Time Out

Carl Theodor Dreyer’s acclaimed 1928 silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc (La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc), starring Renée Jeanne Falconetti, is based on the actual record of the trial and execution of Joan of Arc. The depiction of the French heroine who was burned at the stake in 1431 and ultimately canonized is often described as one of the finest performances in cinema history. The acclaimed Orlando Consort brings the sound of the 15th century to life with live vocal music from such composers as Guillaume Dufay, Gilles Binchois and others to enhance the film's startling imagery with “consummate mastery and refinement” (The New York Times).
