NORTH BY CURRENT with filmmaker Angelo Madsen Minax
Angelo Madsen Minax, 2021, 85 min, DCP Digital
An unspeakable tragedy both binds and fractures filmmaker Angelo Madsen Minax’s family in this moving and formally audacious documentary. Over nearly five years of visits to his hometown of Grayling, Michigan, Minax chronicles his sister’s struggles with motherhood, mourning, and domestic abuse, as well as his own fraught conversations with his Mormon parents around his identity as a trans man. Through probing commentary and footage drawn from decades of home movies, NORTH BY CURRENT confronts the burdens of memory with candor and care, inviting us to bear witness to the power of healing and acceptance.

Director Angelo Madsen Minax will appear to introduce and discuss the screening.

Presented in collaboration with the Department of Art, Theory, and Practice at Northwestern.
