AFS x IDA: Master Class with Cinematographer Kirsten Johnson

Austin Public, 1143 Northwestern Ave, Austin TX 78702

The IDA and Austin Film Society are excited to join forces with cinematographer and director Kirsten Johnson for a 3-hour Master Class on documentary cinematography and storytelling. 

Johnson, whose widely acclaimed directorial debut Cameraperson won top prize at the Cinema Eye Honors, has worked with a wide range of filmmakers, artists, and journalists, including Michael Moore and Laura Poitras. Her primary subject is the ethics of image-making, and how those ethics inform documentary practice in a "post-fact" environment. 

Join us in Austin for a unique and provocative encounter with one of today's most significant nonfiction artists.
