The September 24 screening will be followed by a Q&A featuring filmmaker Morrisa Maltz.

THE UNKNOWN COUNTRY follows a grieving woman (Lily Gladstone) as she travels from the Midwest to the Texas-Mexico border following an invitation to reconnect with her estranged Oglala-Lakota family.

During her largely solitary and surreal journey towards an unknown destination, Tana (Gladstone) navigates a post-2016 election social climate against a natural landscape, encountering familiar faces and strangers along the way.

Utilizing professional actors as well as real people, Morrisa Maltz's mesmerizing debut narrative feature is an unforgettable ode to middle America.
