Frames of Representation: Uncertain + Q&A

27 Apr 2016

UK Premiere

There is a Q&A with Ewan McNicol and Anna Sandilands following the screening.

Join us and MUBI from 10pm in the bar for closing night drinks. There is a special audio-visual set by artists Martina Amati and Cristina Seresini at 10.30pm.

A cinematic and disarmingly funny portrait of the troubled waters of Uncertain, Texas. A town with 94 inhabitants sits on the brink of extinction and quite literally on the edge of a vast, swampy lake that is being choked by an aquatic weed, upsetting the natural balance and the town’s only source of livelihood. In a town so tucked away “you’ve got to be lost to find it", three Uncertain men make their own bids for survival in looking for a more certain future. An ex-convict becomes obsessed with hunting Mr. Ed, a gigantic boar, in order to stay sober. A young diabetic with big ideas but few prospects fights for a bigger life. An aging fisherman reluctantly lets go of his youthful ways and makes peace with one fateful moment thirty years ago.

Uncertain, dir. Ewan McNicol and Anna Sandilands, USA 2015, 82 mins
