It seems incredible to me that until very recently the story of Alice Guy-Blache,
of her contribution to the craft of film-making, her talent and inspriation
to others has remained lost (or hidden, depending upon your perspective)
As one of the first directors to ever make a film and most certainly
the first woman she is an inspiration to female film-makers.
She was a spirited, prolific & awesomely talented woman.
There is only one question that remains: Why don't we all know
about her contribution? At the very least, her name should resound through
the lecture halls of every film school
- after all Leni Riefenstahl gets this honour
- and frankly as a Nazi propagandist - this baffles me, despite her obvious abilities.
The fact that the story of the achievements and life of Alice Guy-Blache
remains hidden is a total mystery to me, and it's time that was changed
