Alice Lost and Found

Alice Lost and Found
Alice Lost and Found In 1912 a science fiction film hits the screens that imagines a world where powerful women call the shots and tentative men do their bidding. This is not HG Wells. This is Alice Guy Blach? and her vision of the future in IN THE YEAR 2000, one of more than 700 films Alice directed during her lifetime.

Alice Guy Blach? made IN THE YEAR 2000 in Fort Lee when New Jersey was a hotbed of filmmaking and she was the highest paid woman in the US. But Alice fell into obscurity, her studio burned to the ground and the copies of her films were scattered far and wide.

In 2012 Gage and Julia will set out to discover the fate of IN THE YEAR 2000 while uncovering the little-told story of Alice, the world?s first female film director, the first person to ever own a movie studio and arguably the first narrative filmmaker.

Ultimately ALICE LOST AND FOUND is about the caprice of history and the curious conflagration that leads one person to be lauded and another, equally worthy, to be written out of our collective memory. This journey is not only about finding and restoring one film but finding and restoring the legacy of one woman, our Alice.
