Hi everyone. Today I’m reviewing this book, The Memoirs of Alice Guy Blaché. Yes. The Memoirs of Alice Guy Blaché. If you don’t know that name, she was actually the first filmmaker to make a feature film and also a remarkable woman for many reasons.
If you don’t know that name, she was actually the first filmmaker to make a feature film and also a remarkable woman for many reasons.
She was there when the Lumiere brothers first showed movies in France. She got to see these movies and become inspired by them. And she saw the potential of the motion picture industry and helped make it happen. And she is kind of like an icon of something that was or is not really discussed very much or enough these days, the importance of women at the beginning of film history, because they played a much bigger role, I think, than most people know.
[Alice Guy Blaché] saw the potential of the motion picture industry and helped make it happen.
So that kind of hidden history is actually being explored by certain groups. And I think it’s wonderful, but this book is just, it’s a good read. An excellent read. I mean, she’s not the greatest writer, but that’s not important. It’s the feeling of the words. You can feel what she was going through. She’s a very passionate sort of writer. And I liked that about her work and I liked that about her life. And that’s it then. So I recommend this book highly, especially if you want to be a filmmaker, screenwriter, or if you just love movies. That’s it. Talk to you later!
