God Knows Where I Am

Documentary makers Jedd and Todd Wider investigate the sad but fascinating life of Linda Bishop, a schizophrenic woman who was found dead in an abandoned New Hampshire farmhouse in early 2008, just a few months after her discharge from a state psychiatric hospital. The film presents a heartbreaking portrait of Bishop, with haunting testimony from people who knew her and passages from her journal read movingly by actress Lori Singer. It also conveys how horrifying schizophrenia can be for people with the condition as well as for those around them, showing that even the most well-intentioned friends and professionals were unable to protect Bishop from herself. Inventively structured, the documentary alternates between her early adulthood and her final months, her sad demise casting a shadow over the story and giving the film an air of classical tragedy.
