Staller Center to virtually screen Emmy-winning film by Setauket brothers


In light of its film festival being postponed, Stony Brook University’s Staller Center is hosting a new kind of event: a virtual screening of the award-winning movie “God Knows Where I Am.”

The documentary film, directed by Setauket brothers Jedd and Todd Wider, will be screened online for free, followed by a live Q&A on Saturday, July 25 at 8 p.m.

“‘God Knows Where I Am’ is an incredible documentary, and we’re so thrilled to have the Wider brothers and [lead actress] Lori Singer in attendance to answer questions live from the audience following the film,” said Alan Inkles, the Staller Center and Stony Brook Film Festival director. 

Released in 2016, the film follows the life of Linda Bishop (played by Singer), who is a well-educated New Hampshire mother who suffers from severe bipolar disorder with psychosis.

The work earned the Wider brothers an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lighting Direction and Scenic Design.

The two are looking forward to interacting with the Staller Center’s audience.

“We very much look forward to sharing ‘God Knows Where I Am’ with the Stony Brook Film Festival audience, especially during this very challenging time when issues of mental health are at the forefront of all of our minds and discussing the making of the film during the live Q&A following the screening,” the brothers told GreaterPortJeff.
