A programme of 13 short films by Alice Guy made between 1898 and 1907. She was the first director of fiction films in the history of cinema. It was she who suggested to Léon Gaumont that he abandon simple animated shots and shoot short stories with a script. She was given permission to direct, which was exceptional in a profession reserved for men. Until 1907, she reigned in the production of Gaumont as director, artistic director, screenwriter, she experimented with fakes and special effects. Tickets available for purchase at RM10 each. This Hin Screening is a collaboration between Hin Bus Depot and Alliance Francaise de Penang.
