Join us for a special screening of the Netflix award-winning documentary, DICK JOHNSON IS DEAD. The award-winning team of Director Kirsten Johnson (CAMERAPERSON) and Co-Producer Maureen Ryan will join us in person for a Q&A.
As his father nears the end of his life, filmmaker Kirsten Johnson uses her movie-making magic to stage darkly hilarious ways for him to die while hoping that this exercise will somehow keep him alive forever. A creative blend of fact and fiction, this love letter from daughter to father is a brilliant attempt to grapple with life’s mysteries and one of the greatest losses we bear in life – the death of a beloved parent.
