Kirsten Johnson is an American multi-award-winning filmmaker and cinematographer. Here we present two of her fascinating early films, Deadline and Bintou in Paris, which together suggest something of the originality of Johnson's vision.


This focus is powered by our sister festival Visions du Réel, following a tribute to Johnson at their recently successful edition.
