After eight years of travelling through conflict and poverty zones, Marijn Poels - a left wing filmmaker/journalist - 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?

Directors statement - A true leftwinged idealist I m. despite that I'm trying to be very critical towards my own ideology. Otherwise there might be a chance that my point of view will become a religion...

We are living in an era where the gap between left and right has become alarmingly bigger. Our believes are getting more and more determined on who's saying it, rather than checking facts and evidence. Followed by preferred labels and loathing the other views in advance.

Films enough who are claiming truths and perspectives. "The Uncertainty Has Settled" tries not to claim but confuse the viewer with information where he or she must make up their own opinion.

Finding the sensitive line between big dogmas and controversies to break the mainstream beliefs in order to put up a healthy debate and bringing dogmas together.

In a cinematic environment, that is the journalism I like!

We felt the urge to produce a critical but honest documentary about Agriculture, Energy and Climate and financed it 100% by ourselves. Being independent was our most valuable mainspring for making this critical story.

Our dream is to continue. To make a successor film which will be the second within the planned trilogy. journalism is at risk. New models are, therefore, necessary to carry forward independent and critical coverage.
