RadioWest and Utah Film Center have partnered to present the best in documentary filmmaking. We talk with established and new directors who are changing the way audiences see the world and then screen their films.

Through the Lens: Cameraperson

Kirsten Johnson’s 25-year career as a documentary film cinematographer has taken her around the world, often to regions of conflict. Her own film, Cameraperson, is a memoir of her life’s work assembled from a collage of cutting-room-floor footage. It’s also a keen examination of the dilemmas and blind spots that riddle documentary filmmaking. Johnson joins us Monday as we continue our Through the Lens series on documentary film with an exploration of what it’s like to be behind the camera.

Join us for a free screening of Kirsten Johnson's film Cameraperson on Wednesday, March 8 at 7:00 p.m., at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center [map]. Doug Fabrizio will host a post-film Q&A with Johnson. It’s all part of our Through the Lens series in partnership with Utah Film CenterDETAILS
