In her beautifully photographed, poetic new film THE UNKNOWN COUNTRY, director Morrisa Maltz tells the story of a grieving young woman (Lily Gladstone) who receives an unexpected invitation and heads out on a solitary road trip through the American Midwest. As she struggles to reconcile the losses of her past with the dreams of her future, the roads of America draw her to observe the rich landscapes and the open skies. Maltz’s work as a photographer is echoed in the film, a gorgeous, contemplative story about finding yourself by getting lost on the road.

Q&A with executive producer Matthew Mills to follow Saturday’s screening and with producer Laura Heberton to follow Wednesday’s screening.
