Alice: Mother of Cinema
By Mark Bolotin, Shiyan Zheng and Michele Gould
Directed by Mark Bolotin

Alice Guy-Blaché was the mother of cinema. She was the first person to make a narrative film, and one of the first to use synchronised sound, close-ups, colour and so much more. For 10 years she was the only female filmmaker in the world, creating almost 1,000 films and running her own film studio. Yet her ground-breaking role has been forgotten or systematically erased.

This specially commissioned new work by Mark Bolotin, Shiyan Zheng and Michele Gould combines immersive cinema and multimedia theatre and is based on Mark Bolotin's ongoing 'Etc: Experiments in Theatre and Cinema’ project, supported by NIDA X.

A co-production with the National Theatre of Parramatta.
