PÖFF RECOMMENDS: THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC
Screening of the silent film “La passion de Jeanne d’Arc” (1928, Carl Theodor Dreyer) with music composed by Tõnu Kõrvits, performed by Pärnu City Orchestra.
Introduction by Tristan Priimäe
After several years of successful cooperation with PÖFF, the festival will (once again) present a special silent film “The Passion of Joan of Arc” (“La passion de Joan of Arc”, 1928, directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer), enriched by music composed by Tõnu Kõrvits, performed by the Pärnu City Orchestra.
The concert will be conducted by Risto Joost and the film will be introduced by film critic Tristan Priimägi.
This special movie night will create a synergy between film and music for a truly memorable experience.
“The Passion of Joan of Arc” is a timeless masterpiece that tells the heroine’s story, and the orchestra paints a powerful musical backdrop to her suffering and triumph. Music by Tõnu Kõrvits brings the film to life even more profoundly, and the Pärnu City Orchestra and conductor Risto Joost provide this combination meaningful sound and emotion.Additional information: https://www.piletilevi.ee/eng/tickets/muusika/poff-soovitab-jeanne-darci-kannatused-parnu-linnaorkester-suitsuhall-398472/
