Double Feature with KATE PLAYS CHRISTINE

(2016) dir Kirsten Johnson [102 min; DCP]
Through a series of episodic juxtapositions, documentary cinematographer Kirsten Johnson explores the relationships between image makers and their subjects, the tension between the objectivity and intervention of the camera, and the complex interaction of unfiltered reality and crafted narrative.

“One of the most original, challenging and sometimes infuriating documentaries of recent times.” – Matt Zoller Seitz,

“Cameraperson is not merely a grab bag of images. It pulls double duty as a theoretical essay on the cinematic apparatus itself.” – John Semley, Globe and Mail

“‘Cameraperson’ testifies to a world in which it would be clear to see that we’re all connected, if only we took the time to look at one another with reverence and simply listen.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
