Alice Guy – 13 short films

Alice Guy, France 1897-1907, 50 minutes

Rating: PG

After years of relative obscurity, Alice Guy is now being recognized for her role in the development of the cinematic arts. Beginning as a typist for the Gaumont Company, she volunteered to produce a series of novelty films. So successful were her films – and efficient her methods – she eventually became the studio’s head of production.

“There is a decidedly modern sensibility to her films as she playfully discovers comic and dramatic potential in the social mores of gender and class.
