The Lost Garden: The Life and Cinema of Alice Guy-Blaché

The Lost Garden: The Life and Cinema of Alice Guy-Blaché

| 52 min

This feature documentary is a portrait of Alice Guy-Blaché, one of cinema's most fearless pioneers. A filmmaker before the word even existed, Guy-Blaché made her first film at the end of the last century, when cinema was still brand-new. After directing, producing and writing more than 700 films, she slipped into oblivion. This film rescues her brave and shining memory.
