An impressionistic, lens-eye and personal view from cinematographer Kirsten Johnson. Johnson has taken all manner of footage from her 25-year career – a Brooklyn boxing match, life in postwar Bosnia, daily routines of a Nigerian midwife, intimate family moments, etc., etc. – and strung it together to form a feature that communicates both the intimate and the objective, and the complex interaction of unfiltered reality and crafted narrative. Combining documentary, autobiography and ethical inquiry, CAMERAPERSON provides a particular portrait of Johnson's personal journey and a thoughtful examination of what it means to train a camera on the world.
"A transcendent documentary experience. There has never been a memoir quite like this one." Eric Hohn, Indiewire
