Friday, we continue our series on documentary film with the story of Alice Guy-Blaché, the first female filmmaker. Guy-Blaché was working as a secretary in Paris at the very moment that moving pictures emerged as a new technology. She was mesmerized and inspired. Over the course of her career she wrote, produced, or directed a thousand films, and yet today, even in Hollywood, she remains unknown. Director Pamela Green joins us to talk about Guy-Blaché, the woman who saw the future through a camera.

On Wednesday, March 13, we’re screening Pamela Green's documentary film Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché at 7 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City. It’s part of our Through the Lens series, our partnership with the Utah Film Center. Pamela Green will be there for a post-film Q&A with Doug Fabrizio. DETAILS
