Congratulations to our former UnionDocs Summer Documentary Lab fellow D’Angelo Madsen Minax! His film NORTH BY CURRENT, which UnionDocs is fiscally sponsoring, was selected as one of the Tribeca Film Institute’s 2019 Network Projects!
NORTH BY CURRENT navigates a rural Michigan town steeped in addiction, economic depression, and religious fervor, creating a relentless portrait of an enduring pastoral family. The film received the 2019 Tribeca All Access Grant.
D’Angelo Madsen Minax is a multi-disciplinary artist whose works have been exhibited at the European Media Art Festival, the Ann Arbor Film Festival, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Anthology Film Archives, The British Film Institute, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, REDCAT, and hundreds of LGBT film festivals around the world.
The film’s producer, Felix Endara, produces innovative, justice-oriented media that has screened at venues such as Berlinale, the Whitney Biennial, the New Museum Triennial, DOC NYC, Outfest and numerous others.
