Streaming Video - 2006
Rate this:
From within her own brief life to the present day, Joan of Arc's mystique has been appropriated by many groups and causes. This program, filmed in Orleans and Joan's native village of Domremy, allows her to speak for herself through voice-over readings of her letters and her responses before the Inquisition, as well as testimony from the minutes of her rehabilitation trial. Leading scholars discuss Joan's timeless appeal, the growth and uses of her myth, and issues of gender transgression. Images of Joan over the centuries in books, posters, paintings, and film, including illuminations from the manuscript of Les Vigiles du Roi Charles VII, complement the narration.
