Inventing the Movies

1894, Paris. How did a young woman, just 21, schooled in convents and trained as a secretary, enter a male-dominated world and go on to shape the greatest art form of the 20th century?

Inventing the Movies tells the true story of Alice Guy Blaché, who single-handedly developed the art of cinematic narrative.

While working for the Gaumont Company in Paris, she invented the role of movie director, made some of the first synchronized sound films, and pioneered the use of a single character's emotional perspective to tell a story.
