Alice Guy Blaché Film Retrospective at the Whitney Museum of Art, NY

The Whitney Museum of Art in New York is screening almost all of the films of the first woman filmmaker, Alice Guy Blaché. The show runs until the end of January. Six of the nearly ninety films to be screened have been newly preserved. I am a participant on various panels organized by the museum  and the catalogue contains updated versions of the chronology of her life, the filmogaphies, and a chapter that originally appeared in my book, Alice Guy Blaché, Lost Cinematic Visionary, (Continuum, 2002). You can read the article I wrote about the show for Artforum here.
