Synopsis:

Narrated by Jodie Foster, BE NATURAL: THE UNTOLD STORY OF ALICE GUY-BLACHÉ is a documentary about the first female filmmaker, Alice Guy-Blaché, which explores the heights of fame and financial success she achieved before she was shut out from the very industry she helped create. Guy-Blaché started her career as a secretary to Léon Gaumont and, at 23, was inspired to make her own film called LA FÉE AUX CHOUX (THE CABBAGE FAIRY), one of the first narrative films ever made. Guy-Blaché went on to write, direct, or produce more than 1,000 films including 150 with synchronized sound during the “silent era”. Her groundbreaking work includes comedies, westerns and dramas. Director Pamela B. Green’s documentary is both a tribute to the pioneering filmmaker and a detective story, tracing the circumstances by which this extraordinary artist faded from memory.
