Film Society, Humanities, partner to show ‘Cameraperson’ Feb. 21

The Green Bay Film Society together with UW-Green Bay Humanities will present a free screening of award-winning documentary film “Cameraperson,” this Wednesday, Feb. 21 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of the Neville Public Museum. Kirsten Johnson’s film is a tapestry of footage captured over her twenty-five-year career as a documentary cinematographer. 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. Professors David Coury (Humanities) and Jeff Benzow (Arts and Visual Design) will lead a discussion of the film afterwards. This event is a collaboration with POV, the award-winning independent non-fiction film series on PBS www.pbs.org/pov.
