After the inconclusive death of his young niece, filmmaker Angelo Madsen Minax returns to his rural Michigan hometown, preparing to make a film about a broken criminal justice system. Instead, he pivots to excavate the depths of generational addiction, Christian fervor, and trans embodiment. Minax dives head first into the challenges of creating identity, the agony of growing up, and the ever-fickle nuances of the families that shape who we are. NORTH BY CURRENT is a visual rumination on the understated relationships between mothers and children, truths and myths, losses and gains.
