BE NATURAL: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché (2019) Not Rated/PG-13 equivalent

Sponsored by Athena Erie

Alice Guy-Blaché was one of the first people to make a narrative fiction film. From 1896 to 1906, she was the only female filmmaker in the world. She experimented with sync-sound, color-tinting, interracial casting and special effects. She owned production companies in New York and New Jersey. This producer of over 1000 films was forgotten, on accident or purpose, by the male-dominated Hollywood system. But Guy-Blaché finally has her moment in the spotlight. The story of this amazing woman is a must-see!

BE NATURAL: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché (2019) - a true pioneer who got into the movie business at the very beginningin 1894, at the age of 21. Two years later, she was made head of production at Gaumont and started directing films. She and her husband moved to the United States, and she founded her own company, Solax, in 1910they started in Flushing and moved to a bigger facility in Fort Lee, New Jersey. But by 1919, Guy-Blachés career came to an abrupt end, and she and the 1000 films that bore her name were largely forgotten. Pamela B. Greens energetic film is both a tribute and a detective story, tracing the circumstances by which this extraordinary artist faded from memory and the path toward her reclamation.  Director: Pamela B. Green. Narration: Jodie Foster. Not Rated/PG-13 equivalent.
