Winner of the Prix Louis-Delluc, Bruno Dumont’s new film Joan of Arc reimagines one of France’s founding stories to celebrate the irreducible value of freedom. In 1429, the Hundred Years’ War between France and England had already been going 90 odd years. Believing that God had chosen her, the young Joan is a leader of the army of the King of France and lifts the siege of Orleans. The pop soundtrack by late singer Christophe and the diehard acting of a 10 year-old portray, as sharply as Charles Péguy did in his time, the epitome of a modern-day heroine.
