2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Ewan McNicol and Anna Sandilands’ Uncertain

2014 was an epic post-production type of year for filmmaker-team Ewan McNicol and Anna Sandilands. The Sundance Institute got up close and personal with the pair – hosting, editing, sound-proofing, scoring, chiseling down, dressing the Texas-based docu with help/support from the 2014 July Documentary Edit and Story Lab, Sundance Documentary Film Grant, Music and Sound Design Lab at Skywalker Sound | Documentary Film, Creative Producing Summit. The pair had their rodeo-themed short, The Roper at the fest in ’12, and have been around the film fest circuit and back with stops at BFI London, Hot Docs, IDFA, SXSW, Silverdocs, Sheffield, True/False, and Visions du Reel. Uncertain (sneak peak here) should be ready to fire on all cylinders.

Gist: On the shores of a dying lake, neighbors in the once outlaw town of Uncertain, Texas, are haunted by their pasts and battling demons for a future more certain—a tender, humorous southern gothic tale.

Production Co./Producers: Ewan McNicol and Anna Sandiland.

Prediction: U.S. Documentary Competition.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available. TBD (domestic). TBD (international)
