Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographor

Rated NR 59 minutes 1974

Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer is a brilliant, innovative film about the origins of cinema and its most famed forefather, Muybridge. Filmmaker and Cal Arts professor Thom Andersen, over the course of ten years, animated Muybridge's photographic studies of human and animal gesture and movement. Interpolated with these incredible sequences are biographical sections detailing Muybridge's personal and professional struggles, narrated by Dean Stockwell. The result is a film that investigates the history of cinema while it traces its development from pre-cinematic technologies. Drawing parallels between Muybridge's reclusive lifestyle and genius and the explosive, very public birth of cinema, Eadweard Muybridge manages to be both a film about history and a genuine work of art.~ Brian Whitener, All Movie Guide
