Details

Alice Guy-Blaché was a true pioneer who got into the movie business at the very beginning — in 1894, at the age of just 21. Two years later, she was made head of production at Gaumont and started directing films before moving to the USA and founding her own company, Solax. But by 1919, Guy-Blaché’s career came to an abrupt end, and she and the 1000 films that bore her name were largely forgotten. 

Narrated by Jodie Foster, 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. 

“A detective story wrapped up as a biopic…had me in tears by the time it ended. A stirring document of an amazing filmmaker!"

- Pete Hammond, DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD

“A timely contribution to the conversation about the challenges facing women filmmakers…someone who really should be better known by now.”

- Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood reporter

The 16.45 screening on Saturday will be introduced by Dr Rebecca Harrison from Glasgow University.
