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.In Be Natural, Pamela B. Green acts as a detective, revealing the real story of Alice Guy-Blaché and highlighting her pioneering contributions to the birth of cinema and her acclaim as a creative force and entrepreneur in the earliest years of movie-making.

“A detective story wrapped up as a biopic...had me in tears by the time it ended. A stirring document of an amazing filmmaker!” Pete Hammond, Deadline Hollywood

“A timely contribution to the conversation about the challenges facing women filmmakers...someone who really should be better known by now.” Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter
