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

In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
