La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc by Carl Theodor Dreyer
This unique movie is considered as a pillar of silent films. It recreates Joan of Arc’s trial, from her arrest to her death. The innovative editing in which shots of the victim take turn with shots of her executioners makes a particularly moving piece. The film-concert takes place in the Basilica of Saint-Denis where Joan of Arc came to reflect one evening in September 1429.
Quentin Guérillot, titular organist of the Basilica of Saint-Denis, offers us an original film-concert in which the organ accompanies and sublimates this legendary film by Carl Theodor Dreyer.
