The Passion of Joan of Arc / La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc

Dir Carl Theodor Dreyer

Available 3 February 2021

Synopsis

Cinema can be many things: a drama, a poem, a song, a dream. Dreyer’s masterpiece is one of cinema’s greatest expressions of spirituality, and indeed one of the greatest of all films: a daring, radical reimagining of the art form that continues to inspire awe. A tale of feminist passion.

If It Were Love / Si c’était de l’amour

Dir Patric Chiha

Available 11 February 2021

Synopsis

Documentary on the creation of Crowd, Gisèle Vienne’s evocative dance piece based on the undulating, liquid physicality of the 90s clubbing scene in Berlin. We follow the fifteen dancers from theatre to theatre – their work along with their strange, intimate relationships. The line between the stage and real life becomes blurry, creating a troubling journey into our nights, our parties, our loves.
