  • Description: Alice Guy is a filmmaker whose body of work is still a site of contestation for modern critics; of the several hundred films she directed between 1896 and 1920, her work falls into two main categories for Leon Gaumont's studios, where she began her career after breaking out of the secretarial pool in 1896 to become, within a short space of time, the principal director for the studio; and in the United States for her own company, Solax, which flourished for a few brief years after the turn of the century in Fort Lee, New Jersey.
