After eight years of travelling through conflict and poverty zones, filmmaker/journalist Marijn Poels decides to take some time off. In the Austrian mountains no less. It confronts him unexpectedly with the roots of agriculture and its 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?
The Uncertainty Has Settled won the Award for Best Documentary Feature at the Berlin Independent Film Festival 2017. Poels’ filming style is characterised by its real-life approach to recording events. The viewer gets a practical insight of reality without any opinions attached to it.
