The Passion of Joan of Arc (La passion de Jeanne d'Arc)

With its stunning camera work and striking compositions, Carl Th. Dreyer's The Passion of Joan of Arc convinced the world that movies could be art. Renée Falconetti gives one of the greatest performances ever recorded on film as the young maiden who died for God and France. Long thought to have been lost to fire, the original version was

miraculously found in perfect condition in 1981 in a Norwegian mental institution.
