The Lost Garden

In Celebration of International Women's Day
NFB film Club Presents:
The Lost Garden

Keswick Branch: March 4, 2pm
Peter Gzowski (Sutton) Branch:
March 20, 2pm

The film looks at the life of the first narrative filmmaker in the world, Alice Guy-Blaché. Creating her first motion picture in France in the 1890s, Guy-Blaché went on to found her own successful production company in the US, producing and writing more than 700 films.

Clips from her films, which were cleverly edited to illustrate events from her personal life, are intercut with revealing excerpts from TV interviews with Guy-Blaché, photographs, reminiscences by family members, and interviews with film historians.
