A visual diary composed of decades of personal archival footage, Cameraperson gives the audience an unprecedented view into the life of a cinematographer. Past the surface level synopsis, however, this film asks the viewer what it means to view and observe the world in a meaningful way, and what it means to be human by following veteran director of photography, Kirsten Johnson, around the world. Not your average documentary, Cameraperson is visceral, universal, and breathtaking. You will walk away with a refreshed perception of the world. A critical darling, Cameraperson debuted at Sundance to a wide acclaim, and went on to garner numerous awards and nominations, including the top prize at Sheffield Doc Fest.
