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.nnSUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/29qBUt7nnAbout Netflix:nNetflix is the world’s leading streaming entertainment service with 193 million paid memberships in over 190 countries enjoying TV series, documentaries and feature films across a wide variety of genres and languages.

Premise: In this documentary, a daughter films her dad dying in different ridiculous scenarios. Her father has dementia and agrees to indulge his daughter through this filmmaking experiment, but of course, it’s murky how much he can understand. The different portrayals of death ultimately celebrate the life he still has while helping the family embrace the inevitable.

Netflix descriptors: “Witty,” “intimate” and “emotional”

The opening scene of “Dick Johnson Is Dead” on Netflix.

How it starts: An overhead shot in a barn-like structure shows a kid swinging back and forth on a hanging rope while his family watches and sings a jokey song about the French and their pants. Dick Johnson sits to the side and smiles.

The kid on the rope gets off and tells Johnson that he almost died while he was swinging because he was too high. He says he “loved it.”

Runtime: 1 hour, 29 minutes

Bonus: Editor and co-writer Nels Bangerter did an interview at Sundance explaining the thinking behind the movie.

Premise: In this dramatic black comedy written by the Coen brothers and directed by Joel Coen, a sales manager for a car dealership racks up debts he can’t pay and, out of desperation, hires two men to kidnap his wife.

The movie earned seven Academy Award nominations, winning two: best actress (Frances McDormand) and best original screenplay (Ethan and Joel Coen).
