Avant-garde filmmaker and scriptwriter Marie Epstein's contributions to film have frequently been overshadowed by those of her infamous collaborators: her brother, Jean Epstein, and Jean Benoit-Levy. Though she only directed one film alone, La Grande Experance (1953), she was an important contributor to the films of the other two. She both assistant-directed and starred in her brother's Coeur Fidele (1923). The scripts she helped her brother write are considered among his best. Examples include L'Affiche (1924) and Vive la Vie (1937). Much of her work as writer and director is centered upon education, social issues, and the observation of people with an emphasis on children. After the war, she made one documentary about atomic energy. She later became a worker at the Cinematheque Francais where she helped restore damaged silent films.
