The Pacific Film Archive (Pfa), Paramount Theatre, and the San Francisco Silent Film Festival are thrilled to announce a presentation of Voices of Light / The Passion of Joan of Arc: An Oratorio with Silent Film on Thursday, December 2 at 7:30Pm at Oakland's Paramount Theatre. This event combines the performance of Richard Einhorn's choral and orchestral work Voices of Light with Carl Theodor Dreyer's 1928 silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc and is being presented in conjunction with the Pfa's ongoing retrospective of Dreyer's films. 

As detailed in their press release: "Dreyer's depiction of the trial and execution of Joan of Arc is rightfully canonized as one of cinema's masterpieces. The film combines the actual written records of the trial with a style that draws on French Impressionism, German Expressionism, and Soviet Montage to create a visually breathtaking and emotionally intimate portrayal of the young woman's interrogation and last moments. »
