Lawrence Johnson in Barrow, Alaska.

My first “camera” was made out of painted cardboard. Since then I have made over 100 docs, narrative shorts and experimental films. 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 on my next feature, Ghost Money, about my return to Vietnam after 40 years.

Enjoy a selection of my work here:

  1. Hi I’m interested in obtaining copies of the film Hand Game.
    My grandparents ( Linsebigler’s) are in the film and have since passed on.
    Are there copies available for purchase?
    Thank you.
