BE NATURAL: THE UNTOLD STORY OF ALICE GUY-BLACHÉ
Tuesday 3 March 2020 at 7.30pm
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. In Be Natural, Pamela B. Green acts as a detective, revealing the real story of Guy-Blaché and highlighting her pioneering contributions to the birth of cinema and her acclaim as a creative force and entrepreneur in the earliest years of movie-making. “By the end… you won’t only have a clear idea of who this remarkable woman was; you may well have acquired a new taste in old movies” New York Times.
