A handsome companion to Trial of Joan of Arc, Robert Bresson’s sixth film, made in 1962 starring Florence Delay as Joan. This little book reproduces the screenplay in full, followed by carefully chosen stills acting as a visual synopsis. The simplicity of the book design feels sympathetic to Bresson’s refined auteur style. A short preface by the Director is also included.
