Contents/Summary

Summary
Kirsten Johnson, having shot dozens of essential documentaries, is one of the most notable cinematographers working in documentary cinema today. Cameraperson is a deeply poetic film of her own; it reframes footage Johnson shot over twenty-five years in ways that illuminate moments and situations that have affected her personally. What emerges is an elegant meditation on the relationship between storytelling and the camera frame, as Johnson transforms scenes that have been presented in other directors' films, as one reflection of truth, into another kind of story — one about personal journey, craft, and direct human connection.
