The documentary "Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché" premieres in Holywood. Jodie Foster leads as a narrator through the life story of pioneer Alice Guy-Blaché, who, around the turn of the 20th century, became the first director in the world to capture stories on film.
Producer Pamela Green who directed the documentary said:
"As for Hollywood and the women's rate of four percent and the lack of female directors, well, they're there. They just need more opportunities. With more stories like 'Alice Guy-Blache, the mother of cinema,' we point out and document that women were there from the beginning and we are now closing the gender gap. That's my hope."
Alice Guy-Blaché is considered the inventor of many film techniques, including close-ups, hand-colored film sequences and synchronized sound. She also co-founded her own film studio, which became the center of American motion picture.
On top of that, Jodie Foster added:
"Well, it's interesting. A lot of people ask the question: What do we need to do to make blockbusters and big franchise movies, too? I don't know and I don't care. I want women to make the films that interest them and to advance us artisanally and artistically. "
I can't wait to learn more about this innovative and inspirational woman.
