Jeanne D'Arc

(1900)

10 minutes

Biography / Silent

Directed by Georges Méliès

Georges Méliès, a professional magician by training, first saw the new "moving pictures" in 1895. Little over a year later, Méliès was filming and projecting his own creations. "Jeanne D'arc" from 1900 is a unique film for many different reasons, including the fact that it is an elaborate production with 11 tableaux, 250 meters and a runtime of 10 minutes, which certainly wasn't common for its time. Another unique factor is that the entire film was hand colored and this is where the true beauty of the movie comes into play. Georges Méliès made over 500 films, but his most famous is "Le voyage dans la lune" (1902) ("A Trip to the Moon").  The voice over can be an annoyance, so one may want to turn the sound off.  An historical reconstruction in twelve scenes. Jeanne played by Mlle. Calviere.
