Walks
The Passion of Joan of Arc
At St. Michael's Church, Ledbury there will be an exciting showing of the SIlent Film 'The Passion of Joan of Arc'. This is a 1928 classic and will be accompanied with improvised organ playing by the internationally famous Anthony Hammond who will travel down from Edinburgh for the event.

The Passion of Joan of Arc (French: La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc) is a 1928 silent French historical film based on the actual record of the trial of Joan of Arc. The film was directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer and stars Renée Jeanne Falconetti as Joan. It is widely regarded as a landmark of cinema, especially for its production, Dreyer's direction and Falconetti's performance, which is often listed as one of the finest in cinema history. The film summarizes the time that Joan of Arc was a captive of England, depicting her trial and execution.

This is one of the fundraising events of Herefordshire Historic Churches Trust.
