Description

His lens captured the world of motion - but couldn’t help him control his life.

In the second half of the 19th century, Eadweard Muybridge, the father of motion pictures, embarks on an obsessive project to record on film "the motion of life" in all of its abundance. His epic quest is eclipsed only by the depth of his jealousy over his beautiful, young wife Flora. As the project progresses, his paranoia over her fidelity consumes him, until questions arise about his son’s paternity, causing him to erupt. Writer/director Kyle Rideout and co-writer Josh Epstein (Hop the Twig, Cinequest 2010) captivate with an intimate, poignant portrait of a man whose maniacal insecurities and blazing genius sprang from the same searing source. - Pia Chamberlain
