North By Current (Best of Fest)

MFF22 EMERGING DOCUMENTARY JURY AWARD WINNER! NORTH BY CURRENT is a visual rumination on the relationships between mothers and queer children, truths and myths, losses and gains. Like the relentless Midwest seasons, the meaning of family shifts. Director and Michigan native Angelo Madsen Minax documents his own family's generational addiction and hesitance to embrace Madsen's full being. Dive head first into the challenges of creating identity, the agony of growing up, and the ever-fickle nuances of family.
