Directors: Anna Sandilands, Ewan McNicol; US, 2015; 82 min.
This vivid portrait of redemption and survival in Uncertain, Texas, a tiny bayou town on the Louisiana-Texas border, interweaves the stories of three very different men tied to the swampland: an elderly, charismatic fishing guide with a dangerous past; a former addict on an epic quest to kill an elusive wild boar; and a young man who yearns to escape a home that may be heading for extinction. An atmospheric and “hauntingly evocative” (The Hollywood Reporter) journey into the American South, Uncertain is one of the year’s most visually striking and fascinating nonfiction films. Winner of a special directing award at the Tribeca Film Festival and called one of the best documentaries of 2015 by Newsweek magazine.
