Alice Guy's Spanish films and The Empress to show in Bologna on July 1, 2011

On July 1, Alice Guy's birthday, the Cinema Ritrovato in Bologna Italy will be screening a series of films Alice Guy made in Spain as well as the newly preserved copy of The Empress. The Empress will be shown without intertitles. Live piano by Maud Nelisson.

I have written about Alice Guy's filmmaking in Spain here and here. Francisco Griñán has also written about it in his book.

I'll write about The Empress in more detail in an upcoming blog.
