Film Fest Tucson and The Center for Creative Photography Present: Exposing Muybridge by Marc Shaffer

About the Film: 

Brilliant, ambitious, and mischievous, the 19th-century San Francisco photographer Eadweard Muybridge lived the lives of a dozen men before his breakthrough photographs of running horses set the course for the development of cinema and transformed the camera into a machine of unmatched perception and persuasion.  But hiding in Muybridge's work are clues that provoke an enduring question: Can we believe what we see in a photograph?

Program Schedule:

5:00PM – Print viewing of CCP collection materials, CCP 2nd Floor

6:00PM – Screening of Exposing Muybridge, CCP Auditorium
