Be natural- the untold story of Alice Guy Blache opened at Cannes, NYFF, BFI (2018) to acclaim. It felt like discovering a female director after 125 years. We talk to the director of this feature documentary - PAMELA B GREEN. She takes us through the journey of making the film- that took almost 10 years; including the funding, getting executive producers like Robert Redford and Jodie Foster; gettting bytes from Julie Taymor, Julie Delphy, Agnes Varda, Walter Murch and many more. And, the toughest part- distribution of the film. Pointers: 1) Finding Alice! 2) Not geting credentials as a female director- the world lost her! 3) Being a women director now! 4) 10 years in making the film 5) Treatment/ tone/ style of making the film 6) If Alice was not there what would have Cinema missed. 7) Was she the first to innovate / discover the language, the design, or everything was happening simulatenously - we know of Lumiere and Edison's though ! 8) The up hill task of finding distributors.
