BE NATURAL: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché

UPDATE: This part of the funding for this documentary has been funded. 

Since I posted this, the Kickstarter project has gone from $76,000 to $144,500 and counting! Only three days left to reach the goal of $200,000. Even a dollar, helps, this great project. Due the natural thing and kick in some support.

During the early days of the silent film era, women had a chance to become more than actors. They could become directors, writers and even start their own studios. But time has forgotten these early pioneers.

Be Natural is the story about one such woman name Alice Guy-Blaché. She became an early pioneer director, but forgotten by the industry she helped build.

This documentary is to help save that piece of silent film history. At this writing, a Kickstarter is running until Tuesday, August 27th, 2013, to help raise the funds to finish the project. The project is produced by Robert Redford, with narrator, Jodie Foster. Official film documentary site.
