Jeannette, the Childhood of Joan of Arc

Now through 4/19/2018 | Northwest Film Forum

Film & Media Arts Capitol Hill/Central District

Feast your eyes and ears on the truly original rock-opera about the young Joan of Arc by French filmmaker Bruno Dumont (Li’l Quinquin). Set in 1425, eight-year-old Jeannette is tending to her sheep when she becomes fed up with the suffering caused by the English. Confiding in her friend Hauviette but discouraged by the nun Madame Gervaise (hilariously embodied by a pair of identical twins), Jeannette finds that she must follow her true path, ultimately to become Joan of Arc.
