Celebrate International Women’s Day with Pamela B. Green‘s energetic tribute to Alice Guy-Blaché – considered to be the mother of cinema. This fascinating documentary traces how, and why, the pioneer’s films were forgotten and reclaims the extraordinary artist as a true visionary of cinema. Jodie Foster will open the film with a special message before this illuminating portrait plays on the big screen.
