Event Description

Alice Guy: 13 Short Films, 1898

Director: Alice Guy 

Length: 50 min

As part of the celebration of March 8, International Women's Rights Day 

A program of 13 short films by Alice Guy made between 1898 and 1907. She is the first fiction filmmaker in the history of cinema. It was she who suggested to Léon Gaumont that he abandon simple animated views to shoot small scripted stories. Authorization is given to her to direct, and this is an exceptional fact in a profession reserved for men. Until 1907, she would reign over Gaumont’s production as film director, artistic director, and screenwriter, experimenting with rigging and special effects.
