The Passion of Joan of Arc is a 1928 silent film directed by Carl Dreyer. Joan of Arc (Maria Falconetti) was a young French woman who felt called by God to fight for her country and battle against the English intruders. Not only did she dress as a man in order to fight against the English, Joan succeeded as a military leader, bringing her troops to glory with her military savvy and religious passion. The film follows the young saint's trial at the hands of the English after Joan's capture. Shocked by her claims to be doing God's work, the court tried Joan on repeated counts of heresy. Pierre Cauchon (Eug''ne Silvain), the bishop of Beauvais, led the trial against the young woman and brought in false evidence to humiliate Joan and break down her spirit. Under the harsh questioning, Joan kept strong and maintained her original vision, even when facing the possibility of a painful execution.
