The Passion of Joan of Arc with Live Score

December 2, 2016 @ 8:00 pm


This special one off screening will take place in the beautiful surroundings of Lancaster’s Priory Church.

One of the most emotional film experiences of any era, Carl Theodor Dreyer’s 1928 The Passion of Joan of Arc is a miracle of the cinema, an enigmatic and profoundly moving work that merges the worlds of the viewer and of saintly Joan herself into one shared experience of hushed delirium.

Dreyer’s film charts the final days of Joan of Arc as she undergoes the debasement that accompanies her trial for charges of heresy – through her imprisonment and execution at the stake.

The film will be screened with an original live score composed and performed by Hintersound. Hintersound are Lancaster based musicians Lee Affen and Ric Smithson who have previously performed scores for Nosferatu at Lancaster Castle and Williamson Park, and for Metropolis, Phantom of the Opera and Sunrise at the Dukes.
Presented in association with The Dukes and Lancaster Priory Church

8pm (Doors 7.30pm)
