“The truth can be dangerous.” – Madeleine L’Engle

What makes a superhero? Is it a particular combination of fact and speculation, marinated for just the right length of time necessary to cook up a legend? What happens when that legend is in fact a real person, a girl that stood up for a leaderless country? What kind of resolve, what kind of faith, does it take to convince an entire population to believe in a singular dream? And what level of politic does it take to torture, abuse and brutally end the life of a young women who stands firm in those convictions? These questions, though aimed through the lens of larger-than-life story of the French Jeanne D’Arc, find many contemporary parallels. Mental illness versus spiritual inspiration; #MeToo against the unprecedented burning of a virgin at the stake; countries torn apart by never-ending war. The boundaries of “truth” are blurry. What remains – when the flames are extinguished – except for ashes?
