"It's time to take control! The future's yours - if you want it." Verve Pictures has released an official UK trailer for an anthology project titled The Uncertain Kingdom, a title riff on the United Kingdom (aka UK). The project is a ground-breaking anthology of twenty short films by twenty filmmakers, which together offer an alternative snapshot of the UK in the year 2020. The aim is to offer "a unique portrait of our nation today" by telling different stories, featuring different people. There are animated shorts, live action shorts, documentary shorts, and more. For a full list of the different shorts and a glimpse at each one - head to the official website. "From comedies and dramas, through to documentaries and experimental filmmaking, and covering subjects including climate change, migration, disability, homelessness and sexuality, this ground-breaking anthology film gives exhibitors the chance to bring a multitude of new and established filmmaking voices to audiences to document and depict the UK at this pivotal – and uncertain – moment." Take a look.

Good title. After Brexit, do they really know where they're going?
