Eadweard

Directed by Kyle Rideout
(2015, 104 minutes)

How do you capture a moment? Kyle Rideout’s biopic Eadweard shows how this question becomes an obsession of one of the forefathers of motion pictures, Eadweard Muybridge. In 1872, Muybridge reveals his first study of animal locomotion: a horse in motion. In this impressive feature debut, Rideout uses time-lapse photography, jump cuts, and slow motion to recreate the magic of Muybridge’s photography.

The exhibition Sight Reading: Photography and the Legible World will open for program attendees before the event.
