From August 29 to September 25, 2015, the Jérôme Seydoux-Pathé Foundation is hosting a film program entitled “The Pioneers of Silent Cinema,” looking specifically at early women filmmakers.
From the event page:
“For the fall, the Fondation Jérôme Seydoux-Pathé looks back on the career of women who, behind the camera, worked for the development of the film industry in the early days of cinema. Starting a career as an actress for the most part, they are attributed the roles of femme fatale, femme-enfant or wife devoted. Subjected to this masculine perception, these actresses can only be representations of these fantasies.”
Female filmmakers featured include Alla Nazimova, Mary Pickford, Renée Deliot, Marie Epstein, and more!
