Award-winning Dutch filmmaker Marijn Poels comes to Calgary for a public screening of his documentary “The Uncertainty Has Settled” - May 14th - one night only - at 7:00pm followed by Q and A session with Marijn. Doors open at 6:30pm.

Winner of Best Documentary Film - Los Angeles "Mindfield" Film Fest; Berlin and Paris Documentary Film Festivals

After eight years of traveling through conflict and poverty zones, Marijn Poels - a progressive filmmaker/journalist - decides to take some time off. In the Austrian mountains no less. He is unexpectedly confronted by a clash of the roots of agriculture with an alarming modern day perspective. Globalisation and climate politics are causing radical changes such as farmers becoming energy suppliers.

But the green ideology raises questions. The scientific topic of climate change has now become incontrovertibly a matter of world politics. Poels faces a personal conflict. Are we doing the right thing?

Plan is to meet in main lobby by popcorn sales, watch the movie and head to Protected content
