This week I am posting an audio recording with Pamela Green, the director of Be Natural: The untold story of Alice Guy-Blaché and Co Founder of PIC Agency in Los Angeles.

This documentary film tells the story of the first movie director, a French woman who, at 23, directed one of the first narrative films ever made. It was 1896. If you have never heard of Alice Guy-Blanché, you are not alone. I studied film history for years and used to be as much of a film buff as one can be, and I never once heard about her accomplishments. Considering that she ran and established three film studios in France and the United States and that she made over 1,000 films in 20 years, how can she have been so erased from our collective memory?

If you love filmmaking, are interested in the early decades of the seventh art or simply are curious to find out what happened, check out this project and donate to its funding
 
Pamela Green asked me to let her record her answers and I thought an audio interview would be a welcome exception to our usual written pieces. So here it is. Click the links below and enjoy!
