CH-07. God Knows Where I Am
USA, Feature Documentary, 2016, 100 min
“An uncommonly artful investigation of personal tragedy.” HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
This stunning film is about Linda Bishop, who walked down a road for 10 miles, broke into an old farmhouse (with neighbors right across the street) and survived for four months living on apples and rainwater. What on earth was she thinking? This unforgettable film tells us exactly what Linda was thinking, because she left two full-ring binders of notes that are poignant, funny and deeply disturbing. She describes exactly the conditions of her illness, and gives a running commentary on her own death by starvation. The next time you pass a homeless person on the street, think of Linda.
