‘Eadweard’ is a Biopic About Photographer Eadweard Muybridge

Eadweard is a new indie biopic about the life of English photographer Eadweard Muybridge, who’s considered to be one of the godfathers of cinema due to his early experiments with capturing and projecting motion. The film is a 104-minute psychological drama that tells the story of Muybridge’s life, from his controversial photos of nude and deformed subjects, to the murder of his wife’s lover, to his work as one of the earliest “filmmakers.”

Muybridge is the photographer who famously used 12 separate still cameras in 1872 to photograph a horse galloping as a sequence of shots (proving that all 4 feet come off the ground at the same time):
