The latest Bainbridge Island Museum of Art smARTfilm Series will continue with a showing of the documentary “Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché” (2018) at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12.

Guy-Blaché (July 1, 1873 – March 24, 1968) was a French film pioneer, and one of the first to make a narrative fiction film. She is considered by many to have been the first female filmmaker, and from 1896 to 1919 directed more than a thousand films, some 150 of which survive, and 22 of which are feature-length movies.

She was a boundary pusher in her life and work, experimenting with color tinting, interracial casting, and special effects, though her name has long been absent or rarely recorded in film history. “Be Natural,” directed by Pamela B. Green and narrated by Jodie Foster, investigates the full scope of her life and work.

Curated and hosted by Cynthia Sears and John Ellis, the screening will be followed by a facilitated discussion.

Auditorium doors open at 7, with the museum bistro open for dinner service starting at 5:30 p.m. (reservations are recommended; call 206-451-4011).

Tickets, $10 for members and $12 for non-members, are on sale at www.brownpapertickets.com (Event #4058233). Series tickets, $40-$48 each, are also available.
