Alice Guy Blache by Emmanuelle Gaume with Alexandra Lamy
Why a movie? Guy-Blaché is the definition of an industry pioneer, rising first through Gaumont Studios, then by becoming the founder and head of Solax Studios. By all accounts a cisgender woman, she nonetheless challenged masculine stereotypes, making big meaningful moves like casting women into then-typically male professions, like magicians or dog-trainers, and taking on the masculine roles herself, dressing as a man and stepping in front of the camera. Today, as we continue to mold our perspectives on how we conceptualize gender and sexuality in mainstream artr, Guy-Blaché’s story is both a feminist rendering of an inherently masculine system, and a subversion of how women were expected to perform both on- and off-screen

"The Pioneer" by Daniela Abke

"The Pioneer" by Daniela Abke ...In the early days of cinema, when there was little to no gender divide in film production, Alice Guy was a leader. She made hundreds of films, most of which have been lost. This film plays some of her French and American films in a found-footage collage, along with an interview with the artist reflecting on her career. Shannon Hanmer
