Description
 
In our collective memory, Joan of Arc is the teenage shepherd girl who was burned at the stake in Rouen after saving France from the English. But long-buried 15th-century documents suggest another story. At the time of the execution, many people questioned the events at Rouen, insisting another girl was burned instead. Documentary filmmaker and musician Martin Meissonnier (Life of Buddha) revisits the story of the world's most famous martyr to discern the real Joan of Arc. Also known as Jeanne d'Arc, la Contre-Enquete and Vraie Jeanne, Fausse Jeanne. In English and French with English subtitles.
