Smartphones have turned everyone into a camera person. To make one’s career as a professional cinematographer, however, requires a fearless point of view and a willingness to face uncomfortable and perilous situations. That is what Kirsten Johnson has done for 25 years, and CAMERAPERSON is Kirsten’s personal memoir that gives viewers an intimate and meditative look at her work.
Cameraperson has its national broadcast premiere on the PBS documentary series POV (Point of View) on Monday, Oct. 23, 2017. POV is American television’s longest-running independent documentary series, now in its 30th season. Check local listings.
