Rooftop Cinema: North by Current

227 State St.
Madison, WI 53703

Bring a friend, bring a blanket or camp chairs, and enjoy the film “North by Current” under the stars.

North by Current is a 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, 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. Like the relentless Michigan seasons, the meaning of family shifts, as Madsen, his sister, and his parents strive tirelessly to accept each other.

Ticket sales begin at 7:30 PM in the Museum Lobby the night of the screening. Screenings relocate to the Lecture Hall if rain is predicted.
