Presented in memory of Dennis Nyback, the late film archivist/historian legend and onetime operator of Seattle's Rosebud Movie Palace and Pike St. Cinema, this 16mm screening of Danish master Carl Theodor Dreyer's 1928 silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc will include a live score by cellist Lori Goldston. (She's performed with Earth, Nirvana, the Black Cat Orchestra, and others, developing an untamed alt-classical vision that's entirely her own.) Goldston describes her musical interpretation of the film as "transiting through the sonorities of experimental chamber music, alt-classical, minimalism, free-improv and ambient music with a special organic feel," which sounds just incredible enough to pay tribute to Joan of Arc's complex spiritual rapture in the hours before her death. The film itself is a bit of a miracle, too—thought to have been burned in a fire, it was found in perfect condition in 1981 in a Norwegian mental institution.
