First screened in October 2016
Director: Kirsten Johnson. Nonfiction collage of footage taken by Johnson as director of photography on a wide variety of projects across her career.

Twitter Capsule: So much to absorb during the film that reflections mostly hit later—like, what a full life, and a distressing one.

VOR:   At first, I found the acclaim a bit excessive. But its power is cumulative, as is its cross-section of photographic styles and perspectives.
