CCA presents CAMERAPERSON: A Life of Images
with Kirsten Johnson:

Kirsten Johnson has served as cinematographer on some of the most important documentaries of the past thirty years. Her award-winning directorial feature debut, CAMERAPERSON, features a tapestry of footage captured over her 25-year career as a documentary cinematographer. This cinematic memoir is a moving glimpse into one filmmaker’s personal journey while highlighting the remarkable stories of others, showcasing the resilience of abuse survivors, the devastation of war and global injustices. A boxing match in Brooklyn; life in postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina; the daily routine of a Nigerian midwife; an intimate family moment at home with the director: Kirsten Johnson weaves these scenes and others into what the New York Times calls “transfixing” and “unlike anything you’ve seen before.”

Join us for this WEBINAR EVENT where Kirsten Johnson will share clips from the film and discuss the spiritual and emotional nature of the moving image, as well as talking matters of mortality as her award-winning DICK JOHNSON IS DEAD arrives on Netflix.

October 4, 7pm
