TQFF is proud to present 𝐍𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐡 𝐛𝐲 𝐂𝐮𝐫𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐭 directed by Angelo Madsen Minax
𝐍𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐡 𝐛𝐲 𝐂𝐮𝐫𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐭 is visual rumination on the understated relationships between mothers and children, truths and myths, losses and gains. After the inconclusive death of his young niece, filmmaker Angelo Madsen Minax returns to his rural Michigan hometown, determined to make a film about the family’s wrongful persecution. Once there, instead, he pivots to excavate the depths of generational addiction, Christian fervor, and trans embodiment. Like the relentless Michigan seasons, the meaning of family changes as Madsen, his sister, and his parents strive tirelessly to accept each other.
Content Warnings: transphobia, flashing lights, addiction, police, domestic violence, child abuse
