In the past, women filmmakers were not given the recognition they deserved. Nonetheless, some female filmmakers were able to create films that resembled documentaries.
Miss Dundee and Her Performing Dogs: This is a three-minute short documentary from 1902 in which a woman gives a music hall performance with her remarkably well-trained dogs.
A Story Well Spun: In 1906, a two-minute comedy film depicting a man unlucky enough to take a fall in a barrel was released.
Falling Leaves: This is a 12-minute short drama from 1912 that depicts a situation in which the city is afflicted with the white plague, and a young girl named Trixie believes she can cure the plague by stopping the autumn leaves from falling.
