Everything | a short film designed in the public domain

Everything is a coming of age short set in El Paso that tells the story of Sinai, a young woman faced with a life changing decision.

“Everything” is an interesting public domain film project. They are currently running a crowdfunding campaign, check it out here.


Established in 2016, Unkut is a nonprofit production company designing films in the public domain. Based in Austin, TX our goal is to help create a more sustainable future for independent cinema.

By moving to a nonprofit model, we hope to help create and contribute to a form of art, one that is based on openness and giving, transparency and hope. Our vision is to make cinema, like love, in all its forms, accessible to everyone, not only to viewers but creators alike.

Our films and all source material including fonts, screenplays, storyboards, music and props will be freely available to copy, distribute, display, perform, remix and sell. And by releasing our projects under a Creative Commons CC0 license, it’s our hope that we can, in some small way, help to contribute to the world’s cultural heritage that we all freely share in.

Our first film, Everything, is a coming of age short set in El Paso. It follows the story of Sinai, a young woman faced with the decision of working at a motel or joining the Army after the death of her ailing father. Set during the backdrop of the recession in 2009 and torn between a life of uncertainty or ill will, Sinai must decide if circumstance or faith will determine her destiny.
