One of the reasons I made the documentary Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché, about the first female filmmaker, was because I wanted to change the narrative about the origins of cinema—and show young girls and boys that a woman moved the medium forward, and paved the way for others.
Alice Guy-Blaché was not only the first female filmmaker. She was an entrepreneur and the first woman to own and run a film studio, all at a time when women didn’t even have the right to vote.
Alice ignored the obstacles. Instead, she saw possibilities. That’s a story that should inspire us all—and that all of us should be sharing.
Be Natural is available on DVD as of today, and you can watch it now on Fandango, iTunes, Amazon Prime, GooglePlay and more. (Or you could just share this post on Facebook: The first ten people to do so will get a free DVD!)
