Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché

Pamela B Green / US, 2018 / 103 min.

Only film specialists are in the know: the early cinema had a remarkable share of women behind the camera. One of them was Alice Guy-Blaché, who was very successful with her New Jersey-based Solax production company. Jodie Foster talks about the virtually forgotten life story of this director, producer and film pioneer.
