Location: Michael and Kimthanh Lê Planetarium

Free screening with virtual guest, writer/director Morrisa Maltz.

For our next reverie in the artificial skies of ODU's Le Planetarium, we're screening THE UNKNOWN COUNTRY, a beautifully shot, lyrical road movie through flyover country anchored by a delicate performance by Lily Gladstone (Winning her top honors at the 2023 Gotham Awards). After the screening, we'll be joined virtually by the film's writer and director Morrisa Maltz for a discussion on the film, moderated by ODU Film Studies professor Dr. Najmeh Moradiyan-Rizi.

Reeling from a devastating loss, Tana (Lily Gladstone) is pulled back into the world by an unexpected invitation to her cousin's wedding. She packs up her late grandmother's Cadillac and hits the open road, driving from her home in Minnesota to South Dakota... A personal reverie summoned from a beguiling mix of fact and fiction, The Unknown Country is an arresting debut feature from Morrisa Maltz.
