Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché

Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché

Stream HERE!

As International Women's Day winds down it seems like a good time to choose Pamela B. Green's wonderful 2018 documentary BE NATURAL: THE UNTOLD STORY OF ALICE GUY-BLACHE' for our Rialto Recommends title. The epic life story of Alice Guy-Blaché (1873–1968), a French screenwriter, director and producer, true pioneer of cinema, the first person who made a narrative fiction film; author of hundreds of movies, but banished from history books. Ignored and forgotten. At last remembered. BE NATURAL: THE UNTOLD STORY OF ALICE GUY-BLACHE' aims an overdue spotlight on a cinematic innovator's career, with the added benefit of absorbing historical context. The New York Times raved "By the end of BE NATURAL, you won't only have a clear idea of who this remarkable woman was; you may well have acquired a new taste in old movies." While the Times in the UK said "Cineastes, film nerds and feminists alike will be gripped by this documentary portrait of Alice Guy-Blaché. Who? That's the point." BE NATURAL: THE UNTOLD STORY OF ALICE GUY-BLACHE' is streaming on Curiosity Stream and WatchTCM. The film is also available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu, Apple and others. Check out this wonderful documentary that you might have missed when it was in theatres in the spring of 2019.
