Description
As a cinematographer, Kristen Johnson has garnered acclaim for her work on documentaries such as PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL, THE INVISIBLE WAR, THE OATH, and CITIZENFOUR amongst many others. This time around she takes the director’s chair. The ensuing documentary is a contemplative memoir patched together from disparate excerpts from her previous works, and its intimacy takes you by surprise. Johnson’s camera takes us from Tahrir Square to a Serbian kill site during the war, and from the World Trade Center to a new-born baby struggling to survive in an ill-equipped Nigerian hospital. One of the biggest revelations at Sundance, CAMERAPERSON is a kaleidoscopic gem that illuminates and reframes the art of the craft, as well as the art of life.
