This screening of Carl Dreyer's 1928 classic with Live Score is performed by Cork composer Irene Buckley, soprano Emma Nash & organist James McVinnie.
Originally commissioned by the Cork French Film Festival, this live score for The Passion of Joan of Arc ( 'the pinnacle of silent cinema – and perhaps of the cinema itself') for soprano, pipe organ and electronics premiered at Triskel Christchurch, Cork. The Cork French Film Festival has since toured the Passion of Joan of Arc to Glasgow Cathedral for the Glasgow Film Festival, Skibbereen Arts Festival, St. Fin Barre's Cathedral Cork and Union Chapel in London.
