The untold story of Alice Guy-Blaché

“BE NATURAL: THE Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché” will play Aug. 25, at 1 p.m., in Dana Auditorium, during the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival.

MIDDLEBURY — 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.
