You’ve Never Heard Of This Woman And She’s Basically The Most Important Person In Movie History

I just learned about this woman who made the first narrative film, ran a film studio, and made 1000 movies.

Alice Guy-Blaché was a woman of firsts. She did so many awesome things for movies and as you’ll see, just about no one has heard of her. That’s a travesty. The fact that this woman who made history was completely forgotten made me emotional for a full 8 minutes, much to the consternation of everyone around me.”  There’s a kickstarter campaign to make a documentary about her.
