Dick Johnson Is Dead is a standout film from documentarian Kirsten Johnson out of the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Watch the magical trailer and see for yourself.

Dick Johnson Is Dead is a tribute to Johnson’s father, Dick, and helps her to cope with his deteriorating memory. “Now, it’s upon us,” she says in the trailer, “the beginning of his disappearance.”

She copes with the pain of knowing she’ll one day lose a loved one is through comedy. She uses her vast knowledge of movie making magic tricks to stage various ways in which Dick dies. And Dick seems to have a great time in doing it.

“I suggested we make a movie about him dying. He said yes,” Kirsten says.

Kirsten, who previously directed Cameraperson and served as the cinematographer on Citizenfour, won the 2020 Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Award for Innovation in Nonfiction Storytelling when the film premiered at the festival in January. Dick Johnson Is Dead will now premiere on Netflix this October 2.
