Joan's canonization in 1920 added to her popularity. Dany Chiasson grew up on the Magdalen Islands listening to her grandmother's stories about Sainte Jeanne D'Arc. When Dany grew up she decided to retrace the first 11 days of Joan's journey to save France. Dany believes this was when the real Joan shone and truly answered her calling. She talks about her documentary Ma Jeanne D'Arc.
Ma Jeanne D'Arc is being screened in Toronto at the TIFF Bell Lightbox on Friday, September 28, 2012 at 7:00 pm.
This segment is part of Tapestry's Joan of Arc show, where we look at why Joan continues to inspire the religious and non-religious to this day.
