The Unknown Country

NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE

WINNER: Best Narrative Feature

WINNER: Ralph Steiner Prize for Poetic Cinema 

An unexpected invitation launches a grieving young woman on a solitary road trip through the American Midwest toward the Texas-Mexico border. Navigating the complex, post-2016 election social climate, and a natural landscape that is increasingly surreal, familiar faces and strangers shape her journey as she struggles to reconcile the losses of her past with the dreams of her future. The Unknown Country will be making its New England premiere at MNFF8.
