"A rich and deeply moving story of a man whose achievement opened up a new world, and of the two women whose love and sacrifices made it possible!"
Add to Watchlist

William Friese-Greene was the first man to produce and patent a commercially practical motion-picture camera based on the principles still used today. He lived for his work, sacrificing himself and his family and fortune to satisfy an obsession - to make pictures move. This is his story and the story of the two women who loved him.
