Seeing and Believing 266 | Kirsten Johnson’s Dick Johnson Is Dead and Jeff Orlowski’s The Social Dilemma

It's documentary week here on Seeing & Believing, featuring two new films from Netflix. Wade and Kevin dig into Dick Johnson Is Dead, an intensely personal new film from Cameraperson director Kirsten Johnson. By turns irreverent, playful, and deeply emotional, Johnson's film explores the prospect of death and what it means to say goodbye. The guys also spend some time with The Social Dilemma, a sobering documentary about smartphones, social media, and the dark underbelly of the technology that powers them.Music interlude by Fuscation, "SHAI."
