The Sparkle Barn is pleased to announce that it will host the first Vermont screenings of the award winning documentary – Be Natural, on Friday, March 20th and 27th both events will begin at 7pm. Women’s History month is the perfect time to come enjoy this fantastic look into the life of a female pioneer in the field of film and film production.
When Alice Guy-Blaché completed her first film in 1896 Paris, she was not only the first female filmmaker, but one of the first directors ever to make a narrative film. Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché follows her rise from Gaumont secretary to her appointment as head of production a year later, and her subsequent illustrious 20-year career in France and in the United States, as the founder of her own studio and as writer, director, and/or producer of 1,000 films—after which she was veritably erased from history. Until now…. Directed by Pamela B. Green, the film is narrated by Jodie Foster.
Pamela B. Green is the producer, director, editor, and co-writer of the feature documentary Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and was an Official Selection of Deauville American Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival, New York Film Festival, and the BFI London Film Festival, among many others. The film was released theatrically in 2019 to great critical acclaim in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand and will open in theaters in the UK and France in 2020. Be Natural was nominated for a Critics’ Choice Documentary Award.
Founder of PIC, an entertainment and motion design boutique based in Los Angeles, Green has creative directed, produced, and directed feature film main titles, motion graphics, music videos, and award packages and advised on internal story sequences for the Bourne series, The Muppets, Twilight, Supergirl, and many more.
