Details

Carl Theodor Dreyer directs this classic silent film depicting the trial and execution of Joan of Arc.

Following her heroic role in the Hundred Years War, Frenchwoman Joan of Arc (Maria Falconetti) has been captured by her enemies, the English. Placed on trial on trumped up charges of heresy, she defends herself bravely from the machinations of accusers that include Bishop Pierre Cauchon (Eugene Silvain) and Jean d'Estivet (André Berley). 

A haunting, supremely moving drama that has become a landmark of cinema. 

The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present The Passion of Joan of Arc in an exclusively restored version, presented in both 20fps and 24fps playback speeds, and featuring Dreyer's own original Danish-language intertitles.
