The First

Feature // currently in development // 2015


Based on the biography 'Pickford: The Woman Who Made Hollywood' written by Eileen Whitfield, this biopic will be a poetic journey, using the language of film to hopscotch through time. The First will illuminate the artistry, passion, and dignity that moves Mary Pickford through her groundbreaking and controversial world. 


"Ultimately, this film is a celebration of humanity; of wisdom; of the gift to visualize, imagine, and create. In essence, it is a celebration of the power of the mind and of femininity."

- Jennifer DeLia, Director of The First
