Screening | Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché
When Alice Guy-Blaché completed her first film in 1896 Paris, she was not only the first female filmmaker, but one of the first directors ever to make a narrative film. Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché follows her rise from Gaumont secretary to her appointment as head of production in 1897 and her subsequent illustrious 20-year career in France and in the US, where she founded her own studio and wrote, directed and/or produced 1,000 films. Directed by Pamela Green and narrated by Jodie Foster, this film brings Guy-Blaché out of obscurity. The screening will be followed by Holly Gaboriault and Leora Maltz-Leca in conversation with director Pamela Green (via video chat) at 7:30 pm.
