FRIEDAcommunity & Alliance Française welcome you to Soirée Cinéma Français (French Movie Night) on Wednesday March 27th for Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché, narrated by Jodie Foster.

When Alice Guy-Blaché completed her first film in 1896 Paris, she was not only the first female filmmaker, but one of the first directors ever to make a narrative film. Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché follows her rise from Gaumont secretary to her appointment as head of production a year later, and her subsequent illustrious 20-year career in France and in the United States, as the founder of her own studio and as writer, director, and/or producer of 1,000 films—after which she was veritably erased from history. Until now….
