THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC (1928)*: Silent Film with Ensemble Accompaniment
A Fox Theatre Film Series Presentation

Luscious Noise
John Stubbs, conductor

Carl Theodor Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc is often cited as one of the most remarkable films ever made. Its series of mesmerizing close-ups and the yearning, hypnotic performance of Renée Jeanne Falconetti as Joan are simply unforgettable. The film’s sense of religious transcendence will be heightened by a unique collaboration with San Diego art music collective Luscious Noise, who will perform John Luther Adams’ stunning In the White Silence live as the film plays. Film is free for Fox Theatre Film Series subscribers!

*San Diego Symphony Orchestra does not appear as part of this presentation, though several Luscious Noise members are SDSO musicians. Note: this film, though from the Silent Era, may not be appropriate for young children.
