Screened April 13–26, 2018

Joining the ranks of many renowned filmmakers to tackle the story of Joan of Arc, Bruno Dumont (director of Quad premiere Slack Bay) opts to focus on Joan’s adolescence — with a wild stylistic twist. No stodgy historical biopic, Jeannette takes the form of a heavy metal musical to tell the story of the famed young 15th-century shepherdess encountering her destiny. The result is a true tour de force, one of the most original cinematic experiences in years.
