Acclaimed as one of the finest films ever made, Carl Theodor Dreyer’s silent film, La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc (1928), chronicles the trial of Joan of Arc in the hours leading up to her execution. Actress Renée Falconetti’s haunting face channels the agony and ecstasy of martyrdom in a legendary performance that remains a landmark in the history of cinema. Britain’s celebrated early music vocal ensemble, the Orlando Consort, transports us to Joan’s world, accompanying the film live with a deeply moving soundtrack of sacred and secular music from her lifetime.
