Silent Film - The Passion of Joan of Arc

The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928) is a French silent film based on the record of the trial of Joan of Arc. With improvised organ accompaniment by Nicholas Miller.

Director: Carl Theodor Dreyer
Joan of Arc: Renée Jeanne Falconetti

It is widely regarded as a landmark of cinema,[1] especially for its production, Dreyer's direction and Falconetti's performance, which is often listed as one of the finest in cinema history. The film summarizes the time that Joan of Arc was a captive of England,[2] depicting her trial and execution.

This production of the film is part of the programme of events sponsored by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of the project to restore Betty, the organ at St John's Hyde Park.
