The Passion of Joan of Arc @ IU Cinema - 3pm
1213 E 7th St
Bloomington, IN 47406
Price: Free, but ticketed

Jason Fickel provides live accompaniment to Carl Theodor Dreyer's 1928 masterpiece, "La passion de Jeanne d’Arc (The Passion of Joan of Arc)" 

In La passion de Jean d’Arc, Dreyer draws on historical records to depict the vulnerability and strength of the cross-dressing warrior-mystic who led the French to victory against the English during the Hundred Years’ War (1337–1453). Arguably, La passion is as much a study in the moral topography of the human face as it is the epitome of courtroom drama. Its daring cinematography, which speaks eloquently even without dialogue, has been a lasting influence on arthouse and mainstream directors as diverse as Walter Salles, Atom Egoyan, and Michael Mann. Print courtesy of Academy Film Archive. (35mm Presentation)
