GMU Visiting Filmmakers Series: Cameraperson with Kirsten Johnson
George Mason University's Visiting Filmmakers Series is bringing Cameraperson with filmmaker Kirsten Johnson to the Johnson Center Cinema on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at 4:30pm. Through a series of episodic juxtapositions, 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 with crafted narrative. A work that combines documentary, autobiography, and ethical inquiry, Cameraperson traces one filmmaker’s personal journey and offers a thoughtful examination of what it means to train a camera on the world.
