Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer - Thom Anderson
This much-lauded documentary celebrates the work of the photographer and cinema pioneer Eadweard Muybridge. Assisted by filmmaker Morgan Fisher, Andersen re-photographed and then animated more than 3,000 of Muybridge's sequential images, giving new life to the experiments that Muybridge conducted at the end of the nineteenth century. Andersen’s documentary is that rare feat of filmmaking: it works as film criticism, and also as an investigation of cinema’s primordial years, when moving pictures, as a new medium of artistic representation, were being invented. 1975; 64 min. Co-sponsored by the Rutgers University American Studies Department and the Zimmerli Art Museum!
