September 17 Oxford Film Festival Presents Free Movie Monday: “Cameraperson”


This September 17 during SarahFest hosted by Sarah Isom Center, a documentary about women cinematographers, Cameraperson, will be a part of the free Monday Movies Series hosted by Oxford Film Festival at the Burns Belfry (710 Jackson Ave E) at 6:30 pm.

Rather than offering a straightforward narrative, the film invites us behind the lens into this camera person’s world, where we witness a captivating collage of episodic images and stories connected thematically, textually, sonically, and emotionally. The film vividly combines documentary, autobiography, and ethical inquiry.

Kirsten Jonson is an critically acclaimed cinematographer with a fearless approach. Cameraperson was shot over decades of traveling around the world showing different perspectives and hoping the audience find themselves in a new “territory.”

The Oxford Film Festival was founded in 2003 to bring exciting, new, and unusual films (and the people who create them) to North Mississippi. The annual five-day festival screens short and feature-length films in both showcase and competition settings. The festival is a 501c3 not-for- profit organization. For more information, visit
