About Pioneers: First Women Filmmakers: In the early decades of cinema, some of the most innovative and celebrated filmmakers in America were women. Alice Guy-Blaché helped establish the basics of cinematic language, while others boldly continued its development: slapstick queen Mabel Normand (who taught Charlie Chaplin the craft of directing), action star Grace Cunard, and LGBTQ icon Alla Nazimova. Unafraid of controversy, filmmakers such as Lois Weber and Dorothy Davenport Reid tackled explosive issues such as birth control, abortion, and prostitution. This crucial chapter of film history comes alive through the presentation of a wide assortment of films, carefully curated, meticulously restored in 2K and 4K from archival sources, and presented with new musical scores. Special Features include an 80-page booklet with essays and photos, interviews with historians and archivists, and audio commentaries for select films.
“Provides a rare opportunity to see some of the greatest films helmed by early Hollywood’s intrepid women… filling in the blanks of the past and reclaiming the medium’s forgotten stories.” - Christina Newland, Village Voice
