The Stony Brook Film Festival, presented by Island Federal, is presenting the Emmy Award-Winning film, "GOD KNOWS WHERE I AM," on July 25 at 8:00 p.m. at the Staller Center for the Arts at Stony Brook University.
The screening will be free and will feature a live Q&A with actress Lori Singer and directors Jedd and Todd Wider following the screening.
'God Knows Where I am' documents the story of Linda Bishop, a well-educated New Hampshire mother who suffered from severe bipolar disorder with psychosis. Linda Bishop was intermittently incarcerated and homeless, and was committed to a state psychiatric facility for three years. In tackling the subject matter, the filmmakers began from a social justice perspective, but their focus quickly shifted to a more intimate and artistic exploration. The story is told from a variety of perspectives, including her own, through recollection and first-person narrative.
Hailed as "remarkably moving," by the Los Angeles Times, and "haunting and uncommonly artful," by the Hollywood Reporter. GOD KNOWS WHERE I AM is a New York Times Critic's Pick, and a must-watch documentary.
