My firsJohnson-at-Dry-Falls-cropt “camera” was made out of painted cardboard. Since then I have made over 100 docs, narrative shorts and experimental films. My work in history and culture has been distinguished through many awards. Hand Game (2000), funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, opened the American Indian Film Festival. My feature personal documentary, Stuff (2011), won a special jury prize at the Florida Film Festival. In 2012, I received the Individual Artists Fellowship from the Regional Arts and Culture Council, honoring artists who are the strongest representatives of art in the Northwest. Since then I have been working an my next feature, Ghost Money, about my return to Vietnam after 40 years to find a woman who may have given birth to my child.
