Netflix’s ‘Dick Johnson Is Dead’ trailer came out today and it’s an odd film that might have you laughing and crying together. Award-winning filmmaker Kirsten Johnson has the same fears we all do, and this includes losing her father. To help combat this fear that one day she will lose him, she convinced him to film a movie where she kills him repeatedly. Sound odd? Take a look at the trailer below that was uploaded with the following description,
“A lifetime of making documentaries has convinced award-winning filmmaker Kirsten Johnson of the power of the real. But now she’s ready to use every escapist movie-making trick in the book – staging inventive and fantastical ways for her 86-year-old psychiatrist father to die while hoping that cinema might help her bend time, laugh at pain and keep her father alive forever. The darkly funny and wildly imaginative DICK JOHNSON IS DEAD is a love letter from a daughter to a father, creatively blending fact and fiction to create a celebratory exploration of how movies give us the tools to grapple with life’s profundity. DICK JOHNSON IS DEAD was filmed, produced and directed by Kirsten Johnson (Cameraperson), produced by Katy Chevigny and Marilyn Ness, co-produced by Maureen A. Ryan and executive produced by Megan Ellison.”
