    Insightful & highly surprising story of Ms Guy-Bache
    12 October 2018 | by annabellegaubertiSee all my reviews

    I watched that film during the BFI film festival and the director Pamela B Green graced us with a Q&A at the end. This documentary is a formidable labour of love, extraordinarily documented and thorough, on the life and career of the first film director who ... happened to be a woman! Alice Guy-Bache! Terrific documentary, although it was so fast-paced that I felt dizzy at times! A must watch!
