Jodie Foster ledsagar genom en oumbärlig och fascinerande dokumentär om filmpionjären Alice Guy-Blaché.

Som världens första kvinnliga filmregissör (och världens första narrativa filmskapare) debuterade Alice Guy-Blaché hos filmbolaget Gaumont 1896. Nyskapande, revolutionär och progressiv i fråga om stil och innehåll har hon haft långtgående inflytande på senare regissörer. En av hennes filmer (Jesu liv, 1906) satte fart på Indiens kolossala filmindustri! Ändå förblir hennes namn okänt för de flesta filmälskare. I den här dokumentären försöker Pamela B. Green att reda ut varför filmpionjärens namn har strukits från historieböckerna. Resultatet är en uttömande granskning som tar oss kors och tvärs över USA och Europa genom att följa "filmmoderns" mångsidiga karriär.

Regissör: Pamela B. Green

Originally from New York, Pamela B. Green lived most of her life in Europe and Israel and as a result, is fluent in English, French, Italian, and Hebrew. In 2005, she founded PIC, an entertainment and motion design boutique based in Los Angeles, California. Green’s work ranges from feature film main titles, motion graphics, creative directing, directing and producing music videos and commercials. She is known in the industry for creating titles sequences and story sequences using her knowledge of graphic design, animation, editorial, and archival rare stock footage research.

I felt like now was the right time, more than ever, to step forward and help bring Alice’s story to light, given all the current conversation about women’s rights and how more often than not, women’s stories are pushed to the shadows throughout history. My hope is that this film furthers the conversation around how necessary women are to the art of cinema. If people know about Alice—or knew about and continued to remember her contributions to early cinema-- how different might the creative and business landscape be? There were many, many women filmmakers in the early years but history has forgotten them. It’s time to change that. In all, and in many ways, the film bridges the gap between past and present, and I believe it will inspire future generations to pick up their tools (whatever they may be) and go for it – inspiration for the generations to come. There's an Alice in all of us. If you have a dream, and you visualize it, you can do it.
