When Alice Guy-Blaché made 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 head of production a year later, and her 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. The film is directed by Pamela B. Green and narrated by Jodie Foster.
