Q&A with filmmakers after the screening!!
The story of the godfather of cinema has never been told in a feature film. That is, until now. Motion 58’s award-winning period film directed by Kyle Rideout and produced by Josh Epstein, “Eadweard” is an immaculately styled psychological drama centered around world-famous turn of the century photographer, Eadweard Muybrige who photographed nude and deformed subjects, became the godfather of cinema, murdered his wife’s lover, and was the last American to receive the justifiable homicide verdict. It is a captivating portrait of a complicated man who gave birth to cinema.

“Eadweard” stars Michael Eklund (The Call, Mr. Right, Bates Motel), Sara Canning (Vampire Diaries, I Put A Hit On You), Christopher Heyerdahl (Hell on Wheels, Twilight), Jodi Balfour(Bomb Girls, Cinemax/HBO’s The Quarry) and Torrance Coombs (Reign, The Tudors). Many of the roles called for nudity, which was treated in a way similar to Muybridge’s – a study in art.
