Bruno Dumont’s ‘JOAN OF ARC’ heads straight onto digital platforms from 19th June 2020!

New Wave Films has announced that Bruno Dumont‘s latest film, JOAN OF ARC, recipient of Un Certain Regard – Special Mention at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, will now head straight onto digital platforms from 19th June 2020.

JOAN OF ARC is the sequel to Dumont’s 2017 musical film Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc and stars 10-year old Lise Leplat Prudhomme in the title role, reprising her  acclaimed performance from the first film.

In 1429, the Hundred Years’ War between France and England had already been going 90 odd years. Believing that God had chosen her, the young Joan is a leader of the army of the King of France and lifts the siege of Orléans, enabling the dauphin to be formally crowned as Charles VII.

After she is captured, she is sent for trial on charges of heresy, to be judged by pro-Burgundian and pro-English clerics. Refusing to accept the accusations, Joan stays obdurate.
