Jeanette: the Childhood of Joan of Arc + intro

Presented by Open Colour

The ever-unpredictable Bruno Dumont (L’il Quinquin) takes another thrilling hairpin turn with this audacious, 15th century-set, speed metal / trip hop tinged musical. Shot entirely on location in northern France, with a cast of non-actors, Jeannette follows the 8-year-old shepherdess on a path from faith to fanaticism, aided by head-banging nuns, levitating saints and the mystical texts of 19th Century poet Charles Péguy.

+ Introduction by Miska Morning – Surrealism and the Maid of Orleans

Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO. bfimusicals.co.uk
