The Unknown Country

MKE Film Festival

An invitation to reunite with her estranged Oglala Lakota family launches grieving young woman Tana (Lily Gladstone) on an unexpected road trip from the Midwest toward the Texas-Mexico border. In this largely solitary journey with an unknown destination, she navigates the complex, post-2016 election social climate and a natural landscape that is increasingly surreal. Along the way, she bonds with unexpected people who are as much a part of the landscape as the mountains and roads. Preceded by PARENTAL ORBIT Dir. Dara Carneol & Bernard Carneol
