Witness a riveting documentary, about Alice Guy-Blaché was a true pioneer in the film industry since the beginning in 1894 at the age of 21. Guy-Blaché directed around 1000 films and was made head of production at Gaumont, in 1896, and founded her own company, Solax, in 1910. However, her career came to abrupt end in 1919 and her work was largely forgotten. 

Pamela B. Green’s energetic film is both a tribute and a detective story, tracing the circumstances by which this extraordinary artist faded from memory and the path toward her reclamation. With narration by Jodie Foster. 

 

“Pamela B. Green’s documentary operates as an archival treasure hunt as well as a tribute to film preservation the world over.” – Chicago Tribune

“Thank goodness “Be Natural” is here to set a brilliant, distinguished, invaluable record straight.” – Washington Post

“By the end of “Be Natural,” you won’t only have a clear idea of who this remarkable woman was; you may well have acquired a new taste in old movies.” – New York Times
