Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché

Arclight Cinemas Hollywood proudly hosts a special screening of Pamela B. Green's Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché. Green has dedicated more than eight years of research in order to discover the real story of Alice Guy-Blaché (1873-1968) – not only highlighting her pioneering contributions to the birth of cinema but also her acclaim as a creative force and entrepreneur in the earliest years of movie-making. Green interviewed Patty Jenkins, Diablo Cody, Ben Kingsley, Geena Davis, Ava DuVernay, Michel Hazanavicius, and Julie Delpy - to name a few--who comment on Guy-Blaché’s innovations. Green discovered rare footage of televised interviews and long archived audio interviews which can be heard for the first time in Be Natural, which affords Alice Guy-Blaché to tell her own story of how her extraordinary art faded from memory and the path toward her reclamation. Narration by Jodie Foster.

Featuring an exclusive Q&A session with special guests, director Pamela B. Green, Joan Simon, Rosalie Varda, and others following the screening! Moderated by Illeana Douglas.
