Live Music & Film: The First Women of Film

1.00PM Sun 6 Oct 2019 (1hr)
GOMA | Cinema A | Ticketed

SYNOPSIS

Until recently, women directors were largely written out of early cinema history. This shorts film program, inspired by the documentary Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché (which screens separately during the Festival), showcases recent restorations of important French film pioneer Alice Guy-Blaché, whose films pursued progressive values questioning gender roles and racial divides. This live music and film event features a new score by violinist Kyla Matsuura-Miller.
