Linda Bishop's Journal read by Lori Singer

*PGA member

Pushing the boundaries of traditional documentary filmmaking, GOD KNOWS WHERE I AM masterfully employs an unfolding mystery narrative with stunning 16mm and 35mm cinematography to tell the story of Linda Bishop. Bishop, a well-educated New Hampshire mother diagnosed with severe bipolar psychosis, was determined to stay free of the mental health system after her early unconditional release from a state psychiatric hospital. Instead, she wandered ten miles down the road, broke into an abandoned farmhouse and lived off of rainwater and apples for the next four months. She documented her experiences in a diary that is poignant, funny, spiritual and deeply disturbing. Beautifully brought to life by actress Lori Singer (Footloose, Short Cuts), Bishop's fate is evidence of our systemic failure to protect those who cannot protect themselves.  
“A film of great beauty and tenderness that gradually reveals a confounding mental illness, this film is a human story at its heart. Ultimately, it illuminates a hidden problem of vast proportion with an epic yet intimate cinematic vision.” – Jury, Hot Docs
