Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer1974
Dir. Thom Andersen , 16mm Color and B/W Sound 01:00:00
Eadward Muybridge, Zoopraxographer remains the definitive documentary about the full range of Muybridge’s career, not only as a cinematic precursor, but as a pioneering landscape and ethnographic photographer of the 19th century. A fascinatingly erudite exploration of Muybridge’s work in relation to 19th century positivism, the philosophical dilemma of Zeno’s Paradox and prephotographic understandings of physiology and bodily locomotion"
