Activ Intimates Sponsor Statement When presented with the opportunity to sponsor Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché at the 2020 Women’s Worldwide Film Festival, we didn’t know Alice’s story. But as we learned about the life and work of this talented filmmaker, we understood why we had not heard her story. Alice once said, “History is written by men.” She must have known that she would effectively be written out of history. We are honored to sponsor this film which rediscovers and celebrates Alice’s contributions to cinematic history. Thank you WWFF for bringing Be Natural to Arizona and setting history right with this inspiring documentary of the first female film director, Alice Guy-Blaché.
