La Passion de Jeanne D’Arc with Live accompaniment by the Orlando Consort Choir – Turner Sims, 1st November
On Sunday, 31st of November, the fantastic silent movie: La Passion de Jeanne D’Arc was shown at Turner Sims with live accompaniment by the Orlando Consort Choir.
The classic true tale takes place in France and follows the story of Joan of Arc’s trial following her alleged crimes against the Church. Directed in 1928, by Carl Theodor Dreyer, the film is beautifully made, and gripping from start to finish.
I loved the motion picture, and although different from anything I had ever seen, it allowed me an insight to what capabilities filmmakers had in the early 1900s. The live choir accompanying the movie was really great and gave it a much more immersive experience.
The showing proved a massive hit for all ages, giving everyone who came a fantastic evening.
