About this event

Please note that face covering is strongly recommended and that online booking is required to access the screening.

13 short films by Alice Guy made between 1898 and 1907. Alice Guy is the first fiction filmmaker in the history of cinema. She was the one who suggested that Léon Gaumont abandoned simple animated views to shoot small scripted stories. Authorisation was given to her to direct, and this was an exceptional fact in a profession reserved for men. Until 1907, she will reign over Gaumont's production as director, artistic director, screenwriter, experimenting with faking and special effects...
