Scenes and other images are woven into Cameraperson, a tapestry of footage captured over the twenty-five-year career of documentary cinematographer Kirsten Johnson. Through a series of episodic juxtapositions, Johnson explores the relationships between image makers and their subjects, the tension between the objectivity and intervention of the camera, and the complex interaction of unfiltered reality and crafted narrative. A work that combines documentary, autobiography, and ethical inquiry, Cameraperson is both a moving glimpse into one filmmaker’s personal journey and a thoughtful examination of what it means to train a camera on the world.

Kirsten Johnson

Kirsten Johnson, the cinematographer for Two Towns of Jasper (2002), Pray the Devil Back to Hell (2008), The Oath (2010), and Happy Valley (2014), among many others, is the woman behind the camera who shot some of the most memorable documentaries to have played at the Sundance Film Festival. This year, she presents an extraordinary and deeply poetic documentary of her own, which investigates what it means to film and be filmed.
