About this title

Synopsis:

The stop-motion sequences of pioneer photographer Eadweard Muybridge captured the moving body on film for the first time and laid the foundation for modern cinema. Yet the man behind the camera lived a life filled with Victorian melodrama: infidelity, jealousy, betrayal, murder, and an abandoned child. Tried for murder after killing his wife’s lover, he was acquitted on the basis of justifiable homicide.

Those events, which predate his subsequent obsession with stopping time and freezing motion, become the ghosts that haunt Muybridge in the fictional world of Governor General’s Award winning dramatist Kevin Kerr’s play, Studies in Motion.

Cast of 4 women and 8 men.
