Cinema listings with film information and movie reviews
For 25 years, cinematographer Kirsten Johnson has been behind the camera on numerous critically acclaimed and award-winning documentaries including Citizenfour, Darfur Now and Fahrenheit 9/11. She has captured indelible images of human suffering and triumph against adversity, embarking on her own personal journey as she is privileged to glimpse these moments in times through her lens. Cameraperson, which is heavily tipped for Oscar consideration, is a mosaic of images from her career so far, exploring the relationship between the camera and a documentary's subjects, and the perpetual tug of war between unvarnished reality and a carefully woven narrative thread. This rich tapestry of life around the world builds into a visual essay about the nature of filmmaking and the responsibilities shared by everyone behind the camera when they are granted access into other people's fragile worlds.
