Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Without doubt the first female director in the history of cinema. Whether Guy-Blache is also the first fiction director remains debatable. Somewhere between 1896 and 1900--the same years Georges Melies is generally credited with directing the first fiction films--she made "La Fee aux Choux", an adaptation of a popular fairy tale.
