Synopsis

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.

Our take

From Los Angeles Plays Itself director (and renowned teacher) Thom Andersen comes this biographical essay film on the pioneering photographer Eadweard Muybridge. Andersen literally re-animates Muybridge’s trailblazing experiments in motion studies while confronting his anguished personal life.
