This week’s selection…
(Alice Guy Blaché, 1912) 12 mins. [YouTube]
The first female filmmaker, Alice Guy Blaché directs this sweet tale of sisterly love. Blaché not only wrote and directed her films, she also owned her own studio, Solax films, based in Queens, New York and then New Jersey.
“In this introductory discussion, we will talk about the film as well as some basic elements of film study. When I teach American movies, I begin with Alice Guy Blaché’s work.”
