Film: Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché
April 2 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm$16.00 – $18.00
Thursday April 2, 1pm
In 1896, at the age of 23, Alice Guy-Blaché was the first female director and a powerful figure in film, first in her home country of France and then the United States. At a time when women rarely held jobs outside stenography and domestic work, she ran productions, pioneered cinematic language, and started her own film studio. Despite the 1,000 films that bore her name, she was left out of several history books, her legacy questioned and her work attributed to male assistants and actors. Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché traces the circumstances by which this extraordinary artist faded from memory.
Director/producer Pamela B. Green will hold a Q & A session via Skype following the screening.
