Critically acclaimed documentary Uncertain, about a small town in Texas, will screen at the Institute of Contemporary Arts before its On Demand release next month. Watch the trailer...
From the award-winning Producers and Directors Ewan McNicol and Anna Sandilands and Winner of Tribeca Film Festival’s Albert Maysles Documentary Director Award, Uncertain is a visually stunning and disarmingly funny portrait of the literal and figurative troubled waters of Uncertain, Texas.
An ex-convict obsessed with Mr. Ed, a gigantic boar he hunts in order to stay on the straight and narrow;
a young idealist with big plans but few prospects is looking for a bigger life.
And an ageing fisherman learning to let go of his youthful ways, and making peace with a fateful moment thirty years ago.
All the while Uncertain’s vast, swampy lake is being choked by an aquatic weed, upsetting the natural balance and the town’s only source of livelihood. Uncertain is an outstanding feature debut capturing a vivid cast of characters as compelling as any fiction.
In 2015, Anna & Ewan were awarded the Albert Maysles New Documentary Director Award at Tribeca for their documentary feature UNCERTAIN.
