THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC (FRANCE/1927/B&W/81mins/16mm/NFSA/ PG) Dir. Carl Theodor Dreyer
The script was based on original transcripts of the trial of Jeanne d’Arc, period detail was carefully researched, unusually solid sets were constructed and a monumental performance given by Falconetti as Jeanne. However, it is the film’s formal rigour which places it in the forefront of experimental film art.
