Denver Public Library honors Women’s History Month with a collection of silent films created and directed by women at the dawn of film as an art form. Alice Guy-Blaché was a trailblazer in cinema -- from 1896 to 1906 -- she was likely the only female filmmaker in the world. She experimented with early sound technology, color tinting and directed one of the first films with an all African American cast. In The Ocean Waif (1916), Guy-Blaché explores the travails of a woman in search of peace, love and a place to call her own.

Our wonderful hosts at The Preservery will be on hand to take your  order for food and drink during the movie.
