Eadweard Muybridge Film at CIFF / CMA

March 6, 2015

Cleveland International Film Festival
Neighborhood Screening of EADWEARD
Gartner Auditorium, Cleveland Museum of Art
Friday, March 27, 2015 at 6:00 p.m.

Click here to visit the CIFF website.
How do you capture a moment? Kyle Rideout’s biopic EADWEARD (2014) shows how this question becomes an obsession of one of the forefathers of motion pictures, Eadweard Muybridge. In 1872, Muybridge reveals hisfirst study of animal locomotion: a series of photos depicting the movements of a running horse that no human eye had ever seen. “This is life,” he explains to his admiring audience. But Muybridge wants to know more. His passion compels Flora, a sultry 21-year-old divorcée, to move with Muybridge from California to Pennsylvania, where he has secured $50,000 to take more pictures. Although Muybridge considers his work to be science, not art, the resulting photographic sequences—of a woman jumping over a stool, a man walking a goat, two men boxing, and so on—are undeniably beautiful. Still, as Muybridge amasses thousands of images depicting life, his own life with Flora begins to unravel. In this impressive first film, Rideout uses time-lapse photography, jump cuts, and slow motion to recreate the magic of Muybridge’s photography.

Film Festival members can purchase tickets beginning Friday, February 27, and the general public can purchase tickets beginning Friday, March 6. Use the code “CMA” to save two dollars on the price of admission.

Lecture: Josh Gosfield (
Saturday, February 28, 2 pm 

Politicians, con men and movie stars are in the identity assembly business. Artists, photographers, and filmmakers are in the image making business. In this talk, artist Josh Gosfield tells the tale of how he commandeered the tools of identity assembly to fabricate the life story of Gigi Gaston, the Black Flower, a 60’s French Pop Star who never existed. (Meet Gigi in Constructed Identities, on view in the Photography Gallery through April 26.)
