God Knows Where I Am world premiered at Hot Docs in April, winning a Special Jury Prize for international feature docs. The film tells the story of New Hampshire mother Linda Bishop, who was diagnosed with bipolar psychosis and ventured outside the mental health system after her release from a state psychiatric hospital. The doc details Bishop’s solitary months in an abandoned farmhouse following her release.

Bond will also launch a simultaneous non-theatrical and educational campaign, aimed at changing legislation around legal requirements for informing patients’ families about releases.

Brothers Todd and Jedd Wider have produced such docs as the Oscar-winning Taxi to the Dark Side and Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot SpitzerGod Knows Where I Am marks their directorial debuts.

Bond/360 COO Elizabeth Sheldon negotiated the deal with the Widers for Wider Film Projects.
