'Cameraperson': a meditation on a life behind the camera

Hosted by

For more than two decades, filmmaker Kirsten Johnson has traveled the world with her camera capturing footage for documentaries. She filmed the desperation of war-torn Sudan and the stories of sexual assault victims in the American military; she followed French philosopher Jacques Derrida as he tossed out bon mots. Now, she’s cut some of that footage into a film of her own: a meditation on what it means to turn a camera on the world, aptly named “Cameraperson.”
