Earlier today we unveiled our list 25 Filmmakers & Actors That Rocked The 2016 Sundance Film Festival, and ranked among them was Kirsten Johnson. She’s the director behind “Cameraperson,” a documentary that was a very pleasant surprise for our own Katie Walsh, who raved about the “surprisingly emotional and heartfelt film.” While there’s no word yet on a release date, today we’re happy to give you a look at the film with two exclusive clips.
A veteran with over two decades of experience on documentaries like “Darfur Now,” ‘The Invisible War,” “Fahrenheit 9/11,” and “Citizenfour,” in “Cameraperson,” Johnson takes a memoir approach to depict her own life behind the camera, using outtakes and more to create a vivid portrait of her career. And it goes to some places both lighthearted and deeply moving.
Keep “Cameraperson” on your radar, and check out the clips below.
