FIRST FRIDAY FILM —
“DICK JOHNSON IS DEAD” — Note different date for April
Friday, April 16 at 1:00 p.m.
As her father nears the end of his life, documentary filmmaker Kirsten Johnson, stages his death in inventive and comical ways to help them both face the inevitable.

“In ‘Dick Johnson Is Dead,’ Johnson confronts a sense of loss with a teeming, exuberant sense of life. In its unwieldy, risky, manifold funerary joy as well as its fervent grief, the film is an affirmation, beyond particular religious beliefs, that the rituals of mourning are celebrations not only of a life as lived but of an afterlife on Earth, in the love and the memory of family, friends, patients, associates, and acquaintances—and in art.”
— Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Starring: Dick Johnson, Kirsten Johnson
Running time: 1 hour, 29 minutes; Genre: Documentary; Rated: PG-13
Registration required, no fee.
