Trailblazing pianist Utsav Lal scores Dreyer’s haunting movie masterpiece. 

The Passion of Joan of Arc is one of the most emotional films in all of cinema, dramatising Joan’s final days as she is tried for heresy and executed by fire. The portrayal of Joan by Renée Maria Falconetti is frequently held up as the all-time finest performance in cinema. Falconetti had never performed in film before, and she never did so again. 

New York based Raga pianist Utsav Lal’s innovative performances have been acclaimed by audiences at Carnegie Hall, Southbank Centre, and around the world. He will improvise a unique live score for this screening.

Presented by Northern Silents
