Christopher Ball

Christopher Ball, Clothesline Media’s superbly talented cinematographer, will make his film debut at Cannes.

Christopher was the cinematographer on Ingrid and the Black Hole by Truro’s Leah Johnston. The short film will be showcased as part of Telefilm's Not Short on Talent program at Cannes Market in May.

“It’s pretty awesome, I must say,” said Christopher in his endearingly humble manner.

Leah wrote and directed the film which is about Alzheimer's, and how it parallels with time travel. The story features two children who discover a black hole, imagining what it would be like to travel through time.

While it is the first time one of Christopher’s projects has been showcased at Cannes, he is no stranger to accolades. Christopher has a Gemini Award nomination and has won six Atlantic Film Festival Awards, among countless other honours. Along with his award-winning film and documentary work, Christopher has been Director of Photography on Haven for five seasons.
