Joan of Arc

One of my favorite parts of I Henry VI was reading about poor Joan of Arc (even though it was not accurate!!!). I admit I have a soft spot for Joan of Arc, and I can't believe Shakespeare turned her into such a monster.

In high school for a European History class, I participated in a group film project that retold the story of Joan of Arc. This was made about 3 years ago, and I play a couple of characters in it. It's directed by my friend Kitty Mach, who is an up-and-coming filmmaker, and I think she is brilliant. Some of her work can be found here. Anyway, this is the film, and I think it does Joan much more justice than Shakespeare did in I Henry VI.
