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 a year later, and her subsequent illustrious 20-year career in France and in the United States, as the founder of her own studio and as writer, director, and/or producer of 1,000 films—after which she was veritably erased from history. Until now.... Directed by Pamela B. Green, the film is narrated by Jodie Foster.
A scrupulously well-researched documentary about one of early cinema's greatest pioneers and the world's first woman filmmaker.
By the end of "Be Natural," 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. Critic's Pick.
What starts as a biography turns into a detective thriller as Green crisscrosses the globe, searching for clues as to why Guy-Blaché has been forgotten.
