Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy Blache

Narrated by Jody Foster with wide-ranging interviews from Ava DuVernay and Geena Davis to Ben Kingsley this film explores Alice Guy-Blaché - the most famous filmmaker you may have never heard of. By many accounts she is not only the first female director but perhaps the first fiction film director of all time. She would go on to make over 1000 films that enjoyed tremendous praise in her native France and later in the US when she immigrated to head her own studio. Sadly, her achievements have mostly been lost to history. Given the #metoo and #timesup movements, one can only imagine how different our industry and world may have been had the legacy of this progenitor of cinema been acknowledged.
