    France, 1425. In the midst of the Hundred Years’ War, the young Jeannette, at the still tender age of 8, looks after her sheep in the small village of Domremy. One day, she tells her friend Hauviette how she cannot bear to see the suffering caused by the English. Madame Gervaise, a nun, tries to reason with the young girl, but Jeannette is ready to take up arms for the salvation of souls and the liberation of the Kingdom of France. Carried by her faith, she will become Joan of Arc.

    Director once again displays a true mastery of his craft.

    Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

    A prankish exploration of real ideas from a world-class filmmaker who knows how to deliver a well-timed lark as much as a sophisticated drama.

    To make a film, I need to go back to what nurtures me, which is the relationship between art and religion in painting.

    Bruno Dumont (born in France) is a French film Director. To date, he has directed several feature films, all of which border somewhere between realistic drama and the avant-garde. His first feature film THE LIFE OF JESUS was selected at Directors' Fortnight. His films have won several awards at the Cannes films Festival. Two of Dumont's films have won the Grand Prix award: both L’HUMANITÉ and FLANDERS (2006). The only other director who has twice won the Cannes Grand Prix is Andrei Tarkovsky. Dumont's HADEWIJCH won the 2009 Prize of the International Critics (FIPRESCI Prize) for Special Presentation at the Toronto Film Festival, and will be distributed in France in 2009, and by IFC in the U.S. in 2010. CAMILLE CLAUDEL 1915 (2013) screened in Competition in Berlin. LI’L QUINQUIN (2014) wolrd premiered in the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs' Special Screenings. In 2016, SLACK BAY was presented in Competition at the Cannes International Film Festival, and in 2017, so was his film JEANNETTE, THE CHILDHOOD OF JOAN OF ARC.
