The Passion of Joan of Arc

Heritage House will host a free screening of The Passion of Joan of Arc on Sunday, Jan. 14, at 6 p.m. 

Review for The Passion of Joan of Arc: 

With its magnetic central performance, stunning camerawork and striking compositions, Carl Theodor Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc convinced the world that movies could be art.   

Renée Falconetti gives what critic Pauline Kael called "one of the greatest performances ever recorded on film," as the young maiden who died for God and France.   

Ranked as the most influential film of all time by the Toronto International Film Festival, with Falconetti's performance being ranked 26th in Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Performances of All Time, the highest of any silent performance on the list. 

Long thought to have been lost to fire, the original 1928 version was miraculously found in 1981. It is the digitally-restored version of this print from the Danish Film Institute Archive which we will be screening.  

It will be presented with vocal accompanied by Anonymous Four performing Richard Einhorn's Voices of Light and English subtitles. 

Admission is free and light refreshments will be served. 

The film runs 1:28 and is rated 'PG' and is recommended for ages 16 and above. 

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the screening is at 6 p.m.
