God Knows Where I Am
The New Hampshire Film Festival was proud to welcome God Knows Where I Am to The Loft this Thursday. God Knows where I Am is a documentary based on Linda Bishop — a homeless woman is found dead in an abandoned New Hampshire farmhouse — and the diary left behind that documents her struggle with mental health in the stages of her life leading up to her death.
Following Thursday’s screening, producers/directors Todd and Jedd Wider — along with Linda Bishop’s sister, Joan, and daughter, Caitlin.
Brought to tears by the close of the film, the audience participated in a very active discussion following the film. Mental health awareness, law and treatment were all topics passionately touched upon. Todd and Jedd Wider shared hat their main goal was to tell the story through the eyes of Linda and to help the audience understand the beautiful and artistic person she was before she became a prisoner of her own mind. The family members and the audience couldn’t have agreed more that they had successfully captured this.
Following Thursday’s screening and Q&A, God Knows Where I Am was awarded the Best NH Feature Documentary Award at the NHFF NH Night Awards. It had it’s New Hampshire premiere here at NHFF, but can be seen in theaters in the coming months.
