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. 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. 

Registration is required for this free event. To register visit stonybrookfilmfestival.com.
