Johanna Lunn BA >>An award-winning producer and director, with more than 35 years of film and television experience, Johanna is using her lifelong curiosity about the death and dying process to bring documentaries about, “What happens when we die,” to life. “At a young age I witnessed a number of significant deaths that completely cracked my world apart. Because it was taboo to talk about death at the time, I felt terribly isolated. Looking back on those experiences, and with the wisdom of having done much research on dying, I have learned that death, like birth, is one of the most extraordinary events in life, and it is critical that we learn to talk about it.” By talking about death and exploring what happens, Johanna hopes to make the topic less fearful and more normalized, one film at a time. Johanna lives in Nova Scotia, Canada, with her husband Steve and their intrepid companion Gracie, an empathic chocolate lab.
