DescriptionA documentary that celebrates the achievements of the world's first woman filmmaker, including clips from 16 of her films. The Lost Garden looks at the life and times of a woman who influenced an entire art form. Television interviews from the sixties reveal Alice Guy-Blache to be a witty, articulate and elegant Grande dame of cinema who relished a pointed anecdote. Granddaughter Adrienne and daughter-in-law Roberta offer photographs and press clippings from her private albums, while film historians point out the artistry and innovation of her work.
