Alice Guy-Blaché was a film pioneer, and between 1896 and 1906 probably the only female director in the world. A progressive thinker, she experimented with technology, introduced narrative fiction in cinema, and was responsible for the first film with an all African-American cast. Despite these achievements, her name has been all but obliterated from history. Narrated by Jodie Foster, this documentary aims to right that wrong by combining footage from her films with interviews from leading filmmakers to shed light on one of the greatest filmmakers you’ve probably never heard of.
