Be Natural Screens at New York Film Festival Oct 7 & London FF Oct 11, 21

Be Natural, Pamela Green's documentary on Alice Guy, will screen on October 7 at 6 pm as part of the New York Film Festival.

The image shows Bessie Love (left) and Alice Guy (under umbrella) on the set of The Great Adventure or the Spring of the Year, released March 10, 1918. Over a hundred years ago! The Great Adventure is the last surviving film we have directed by Alice Guy, though she worked on one more after that (Tarnished Reputations).

Lights! Camera! Alice! Picture book about Alice Guy!

It's here at last!

A picture book about the first woman filmmaker, suitable for children from Kindergarden to third grade. Library School Journal has given it a starred review and said "Subtly STEM, fun, and beautiful to look at... encourages kids to engage with cutting-edge technology and to innovate in new fields."
