‘ Cameraperson ’ reflects on filmmaking vs reality

Saturday, March 23, 3 p.m.—WOODSTOCK— The ninth annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series at the Billings Farm & Museum will feature the documentary “ Cameraperson ” on Saturday, March 23, at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. in HD projection and surround sound, with complimentary refreshments. Advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended.

Kirsten Johnson’s 25 years of experience as a world-class documentary cinematographer provide fascinating reflections in her film, “Cameraperson.” Johnson takes us to a boxing match in Brooklyn; life in postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina; the daily routine of a Nigerian midwife; and more. She 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.

“Cameraperson summons us to really think about a world that is more connected than we may realize,” said Peter Howell, Toronto Star.

Ticket prices are $11 for adults; and $6 for children under 16. BF&M members receive discounted prices. For a complete list of screenings and to purchase tickets, visit billingsfarm.org/filmfest or call 802-457-5303.
