Think Metropolitan Museum of Art period room meets Greenpeace.

Brooklyn Film Festival Review: “Eadweard” http://thewgnews.com/brooklyn-film-festival-film-review-of-eadweard/ http://thewgnews.com/brooklyn-film-festival-film-review-of-eadweard/#respond Fri, 05 Jun 2015 15:35:30 +0000 http://thewgnews.com/?p=43306 There are a couple more days left of the Brooklyn Film Festival. A review has been dispatched to us by Main Tim who attended the screening of "Eadweard," a film portraying the complex life of Edward Muybridge who is best known for his pioneering work in photographic motion. The film was screened at The Wythe Hotel. ("Eadweard" is based on a recent stage play of the same name. Canadian director Kyle Rideout’s "Eadweard" faithfully follows the biographic template of Muybridge as covered previously by Phillip Glass’s opera "The Photographer.")
