For the return of Virtual Cinémathèque, we delve into two documentaries that examine the relationship between the watchers and those being watched: Citizenfour (2014) by Laura Poitras and Cameraperson (2016) by Kirsten Johnson

These films urge us to consider the complexities and power of the recorded image and how its transmission affects those in the frame, the makers, and the audience. Laura Poitras and Kirsten Johnson have collaborated as director and cinematographer on several features including The Oath, Citizenfour and Risk
