Alice Guy-Blaché entered the movie business at the very beginning, in 1894, when she was just 21. Two years later she was made head of production at Gaumont and eventually directed 1000 films. So why is she frequently absent from most film histories? This fascinating documentary, narrated by Jodie Foster, is both a tribute and a detective story, tracing the circumstances by which this extraordinary pioneer faded from memory. The screening will be followed by a number of Guy-Blaché’s short films and a panel discussion.

Tickets £15, concs £12 (Members pay £2 less)
