A boxing match in Brooklyn; life in postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina; the daily routine of a Nigerian midwife; an intimate family moment at home: these scenes and others are woven into the award-winning Cameraperson, a tapestry of footage collected over the twenty-five-year career of cinematographer Kirsten Johnson. Through a series of episodic juxtapositions, 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.
Join us after the film for a conversation hosted by Take One Action Film Festivals, Scotland's global change cinema project, to delve into some of the key aspects of the film, including the value of exploring post-conflict reconciliation through a female gaze and the personal cost of bearing witness to others’ trauma.
We will be joined by documentary cinematographer Minttu Mäntynen, British-Libyan filmmaker Naziha Arebi and Flore Cosquer of the Scottish Documentary Institute.
