Ep. 402: The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928) - AntiTrash 2021

Welcome one and all to the third chapter in our AntiTrash 2021 journey through La République as we take a look at Carl Th. Dreyer's silent masterpiece, The Passion of Joan of Arc (La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc) from 1928. Centered on an iconic performance by Renee Falconetti, Dryer tells the story of the young martyr Joan of Arc. The film was released just a few years following the canonization of Joan by the Catholic church. We discuss Dreyer's intentions, the film theory of photogenie, the portrayal of Joan and her trial, and much more as we dive into this classic from France.  Timestamps 00:30 - Introductions and Synopsis 08:59 - Quick Passion of Joan of Arc Reviews 26:02 - Expanding the Syllabus 42:59 - Analysis 1:15:18 - Shelf or Trash 1:16:02 - Wrap up and Next Week's Film
