“Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché“
Alice Guy was invited to the Lumière
Brothers’ screening in 1895. In 1896, at 23 she made one of the first
narrative films. Alice later headed the production of Gaumont studios.
Gaumont still exists, making films like “The Fifth Element”, “The
Intouchables”. Alice went on to become the first woman to build her own
studio Solax in Fort Lee, NJ in 1912. She wrote, directed, or produced
1,000+ films of all kinds and then vanished from history. With Alice as
our guide, we’ll take you back to the past, stand next to her and look
into her future, our present
Emmy nominated Producers for Bhutto.

About the Production:
about her and even more surprised that the film industry didn’t either.
We had to tell her story.Alice had it all ,dreams, passion and
determination. With our unique storytelling approach will shed light on
Alice’s story and show the world what an amazing pioneer she was setting
an example for future generations. It’s an amazing time to explore and
there is no better guide than Alice herself. We are hoping not only to inform but also entertain and finally put Alice back into history where she belongs.” —
