Wired Angel (1999)
- Summaries (1)
WIRED ANGEL is a 95 minute feature film, photographed in 16mm Black & White which uses striking and unusual means to convey the story and legend of Joan of Arc. Far from being a conventional 'biopic' or Hollywood interpretation, WIRED ANGEL penetrates the veil of history visually and distills the essences of this story in a silvery nocturnal landscape that is post-industrial but enmeshed with medieval iconography. With shots of Joan in her prison cell forming a visual core and with echoing voices narrating excerpts from her interrogation, the dark claustrophobic shots give way to visionary and hallucinatory images that trace Joan's career through dangerous journeys, from childhood visions and into sacred and profane spaces; battlegrounds, Churches, the prison where doubt and truth collide, and finally into the flames at the stake.
