Začudni svet Edvarda Mejbridža

Eadweard Muybridge

Eadweard Muybridge

Edvard Mejbridž rođen je istog dana kada i francuski pesnik Šarl Bodler – 9. aprila – ali devet godina kasnije (1830). Baš kao i pesnik, i fotograf o kome je reč bio je inovator i začetnik novog senzibiliteta u okviru umetnosti kojoj je bio posvećen. Ako Bodlera, sa pravom ili ne, možemo smatrati ocem moderne poezije, onda Mejbridža, svakako, možemo smatrati jednim od začetnika vrlo moderne umetnosti – kinematografije. Iako fotograf, Mejbridž je zahvaljujući svojim fotografijama učinio da one više ne budu jedino dokumentovani i zaustavljeni poetski trenutci već odrazi brzine i pokreta, dinamike svojstvene američkom duhu koji je Mejbridž prihvatio vrlo brzo po preseljenju iz Engleske. U narednom dokumentarcu prikazan je razvojni put fotografa, podjednako prožet ličnim dramama, željom za inovacijom i umetničkim priznanjem.

„A fantastic documentary on one of the key people in the history of cinema. A portrait of the pioneer photographer, forefather of cinema, showman, murderer — Eadweard Muybridge was a Victorian enigma. He was born and died in Kingston upon Thames, but did his most famous work in California — freezing time and starting it up again, so that for the first time people could see how a racing horse’s legs moved. He went on to animate the movements of naked ladies, wrestlers, athletes, elephants, cockatoos and his own naked body, projecting his images publicly with a machine he invented and astounding audiences worldwide with the first flickerings of cinema. Alan Yentob follows in Muybridge’s footsteps as he makes — and often changes — his name, and sets off to kill his young wife’s lover. With Andy Serkis as Muybridge.“ *
