Meet Alice Guy-Blaché. She made movies --some of the very first movies, and some of the most exciting! Blow up a pirate ship? Why not? Crawl into a tiger 's cage? Of course! Leap off a bridge onto a real speeding train? It will be easy! Mara Rockliff and Simona Ciraolo tell the story of one of filmaking 's pioneers --and the first woman in the world to make movies. Driven by her passion for storytelling, Alice saw a potential for film that others had not seen before, allowing her to develop new narratives, new camera angles, new techniques, and to surprise her audiences again and again. With daring and vision, Alice Guy-Blaché introduced the world to a thrilling frontier of imagination and adventure, and became one of filmmaking 's first and greatest innovators.
