Trailblazing Alice Guy-Blaché was the first woman to direct a motion picture. Born in Paris in 1873, Guy-Blaché was hired as a secretary by Léon Gaumont in 1894, but when he established the Gaumont Film Company two years later, she became the studio’s head of production. Over a 25-year career, Guy-Blaché was responsible for more than 700 works. In conjunction with the University of Missouri-St. Louis, SLIFF pays tribute to this film pioneer with a program highlighted by her 1906 silent The Birth, the Life and the Death of Christ. The screening will feature a newly created score by Dr. Barbara Harbach, curators’ professor of music and director of Women in the Arts at UMSL, with the music performed by members of the St. Louis Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Dr. James E. Richards, professor of music and associate dean of Fine Arts and Communication at UMSL. The program includes a short tribute video to Alice Guy-Blaché by video artist Zlatko Ćosić, with photography by Rita Csapó-Sweet, Associate Professor of Media Studies at UMSL. The music is composed and performed by Brad Decker.
