Ewan McNicol & Anna Sandilands, 82 min.
A funny, heartbreaking and cinematic film from the borderland between Texas and Louisiana. And between reality and dream.
With a population of 94 and a geographic location in the swamps between Louisiana and Texas, the town of Uncertain is more a state of mind than an actual place. As the sheriff himself says: you have to get lost to find us. Here, you can live and do as you like, and when you like. And that's exactly what people here do. 74-year-old Henry, who has spent all of his long life in the swamps and experienced a bit of everything as a black man in the deep South. The 21-year old alcoholic Zach, who has a heart of gold and a death sentence from his doctor hanging over his head. And then there is Wayne, previously a drunk driver with a person's life on his conscience, who has done everything to get hold of a malicious boar, as if it was a mythological creature and he himself a delirious Captain Ahab roaming in the wilderness. But by now the river Caddo Lake – their only source of income – is so polluted that their common future is threatened. 'Uncertain' is a funny, heartbreaking and cinematic film from the borderland between the two states. And between reality and dream. A place and a state that the directing duo Ewan McNicol and Anna Sandilans explore in their debut film with an eminent sense for both.
