Montreal-born director Kim Nguyen’s first fiction film following his Academy Award–nominated Rebelle is a hypnotic romance about two star-crossed lovers who find that the icy expanses of the Arctic offer little refuge from their pasts.

Lucy (Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black) and Roman (Dane DeHaan) are deeply and claustrophobically in love, having limited interaction with the few other people who live in their remote town of Apex in Nunavut. But when Lucy is offered a scholarship in the south, the couple sets out on one last voyage through the uncharted Arctic wilderness.


Wed. April 5th, 7:30 pm

A boxing match in Brooklyn; life in postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina; the daily routine of a Nigerian midwife; an intimate family moment at home: these scenes and others are woven into Cameraperson, a tapestry of footage collected over the twenty-five-year career of documentary cinematographer Kirsten Johnson.

A hybrid work that combines documentary, autobiography, and ethical inquiry, Cameraperson is both a moving glimpse into one filmmaker’s personal journey and a thoughtful examination of what it means to train a camera on the world.
