The World’s First Female Filmmaker & Studio Head

This week, Chloe did a deep-dive into the world’s first female film director, and the first human to make a film with a narrative. She is also the first woman to run her own film studio, and directed over 1,000 films in her lifetime. She broke ground as the person who made the first film with an all-Black cast, and the first to theorize a future where gender roles were completely reversed. She was a revolutionary who was nearly erased from history, and deserves to be remembered for all that she accomplished.
