New Orleans, LA, May 2, 2020: The Joan of Arc Project invites the public to participate in our first Film Festival de Jeanne d’Arc. Each week for six weeks the public was invited to view online, at their leisure, the selected film. Each Friday, starting May 8 and ending June 19, participants are invited to gather virtually in our Zoom meeting at 8 p.m. CT to discuss the featured movie.
Throughout the series, thought provoking discussion questions, virtual concession cocktail and food recipes, and summaries of the movies will be available on our Facebook event listing.
The Zoom gathering will begin at 8 p.m. CT and end at 9 p.m. each Friday. The conversation will be hosted by our leadership team featuring Founder Amy Kirk Duvoisin, Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres and playwright, and Co-Captains Antoinette de Alteriis and Amanda Helm. Special guests will include a selection of creators and commentators.
The movie line-up is accessible through our Krewe de Jeanne d’Arc Library Online Library, a project in conjunction with New Orleans Public Library: Speaking Volumes initiative. Please view the movie in the days prior to the meeting date as you would a book in a book club.
