About the Film
UNSETTLED is an exploration of disquiet: How the weight of what’s happened, just happened, or is about to happen — in the room you are living in, as well as in the rest of the increasingly chaotic world — impacts the quieter moments in which nothing is happening at all. Where is refuge? What are we wishing for in the drone and tedium of an endless workday? What do we dream about when it seems as if we haven’t slept for days on end? There’s no prescriptive recommendation. Just acknowledgement that the waves will continue to crash, and the search for that elusive sense of stillness and calm — however distant or fleeting or right within our grasp it seems — will always be a part of each and every one of us. The music is by Chris Zabriskie, and the film is a collaboration by Cassie Timpy, Jordan Timpy, Jeffrey Yamaguchi, and Juhu Thukral.
