Event description

Description

Cinema's First Storyteller

Alice Guy-Blaché started out as a secretary at a camera manufacturing company in France. She was to become the first person in the world to write and direct a narrative film in 1896.

Over her working career, she made more than 700 movies, but in her lifetime she was forgotten, most of her films lost and some attributed to others. She was a visionary and innovator, promoting a natural style of acting and working with synchronized sound and colour. In the United States, she headed her own studio.

U of T prof and principal at Innis College Charlie Keil will introduce a screening of the NFB documentary The Lost Garden: The Life and Cinema of Alice Guy-Baché and take part in a discussion and Q&A following the screening. Keil is one of our foremost experts on early cinema.
