Nelson filmmaker Amy Bohigian’s new interactive video installation Wide Shot/Close Up explores the collective human experience. Bohigian interviewed 24 Columbia Basin residents from diverse backgrounds, asking them to reflect on their identity and their relationships with themselves and others. By sharing their candid responses, Bohigian invites us to see beyond the labels we ascribe to one another, in order to connect on a fundamentally human level.
