Art House Film Nights: Exposing Muybridge

Tuesday, June 18th, 6:00-8:00pm, Community Room

Join us on the third Tuesday of every month for a screening of a contemporary feature film or documentary and discussion focusing on artists, designers, photographers, and other creative fields. Presented in partnership with the Tiverton Arts Council.

This month, we will watch and discuss the documentary Exposing Muybridge, which tells the story of trailblazing 19th-century photographer Eadweard Muybridge, who set the course for the development of cinema when he became the first photographer to capture something moving faster than the human eye can see--Leland Stanford's galloping horses. He also produced a sprawling and spectacular landscape catalog, ranging from Alaska to Central America, Utah to California. Artful, resilient, selfish, naive, eccentric, deceitful--Muybridge is a complicated, imperfect man and his story drips with ambition and success, loss and betrayal, near death experiences and even murder.

Popcorn and drinks will be provided.
