Four older Sudanese filmmakers with passion for film battle to bring cinema-going back to Sudan, not without resistance. Their 'Sudanese Film Club' have decided to revive an old cinema, and again draw attention to Sudanese film history.
Pamela B. Green's energetic film about pioneer filmmaker Alice Guy-Blaché is both a tribute and a detective story, tracing the circumstances by which this extraordinary artist faded from memory and the path toward her reclamation.
This film is really well done with some remarkable women telling their truth about working in the film industry. After being inspired by some amazing trailblazers for the length of the film, I couldn't help but feel a little deflated to see that it was directed by a man. Surely a film calling for greater representation for women in all aspects of film making should have been directed by a female? That being said I think it's an important film that will hopefully be seen by a wide audience and will hopefully leave a lasting impression on those in positions of power within the industry.
