Event Description: The Passion of Joan of Arc

As part of Films of The Spirit Series

Language: Silent

Director: Carl Th. Dreyer

Year: 1928

Recipient of the NBR Award for Top Foreign Films, National Board of Review, USA 1929; and OFTA Film Hall of Fame for Motion Picture, Online Film & Television Association 2010 

Dreyer's most universally acclaimed masterpiece remains one of the most staggeringly intense films ever made. It deals only with the final stages of Joan of Arc's trial and her execution and is composed almost exclusively of close-ups: hands, robes, crosses, metal bars, and (most of all) faces. The narrative of this profound and passionate film constitutes a double struggle: one between Joan and her captors (the English army and the French clergy) and the other within her own self.

Curated by Rajiv Mehrotra

Collaboration: Foundation for Universal Responsibility of His Holiness the Dalai Lama; and National Film Archive, Pune
