#movies #films #directors - Alice Guy-Blaché (July 1, 1873 – March 24, 1968) was an early French filmmaker. She was the first woman director in the motion-picture industry and is one of the first directors of fiction films. Alice Guy-Blaché is responsible for creating one of the first narrative films in 1896. Guy’s career of 24 years of directing, writing and producing films is the longest career of any of the cinema pioneers. From 1896 to 1920, Guy directed over 1,000 films, some 350 of which survive, and 22 of which are feature-length films.
Guy was and still is the only woman to ever manage and own her own studio, The Solax Company.
I know at least one person who will love this set besides me.
and there are some great female characters out there currently, like Tris, Katniss, and Hermione all come to mind!
