Picturehouse Entertainment presents the UK artwork and trailer for the Cannes Camera D’or winner War Pony, released theatrically on June 9th.

Picturehouse Entertainment has today shared the beautiful new trailer and striking one-sheet and quad artwork for the award-winning WAR PONY, out in the UK and Irish cinemas on 9th June.


WAR PONY is the directorial debut of Riley Keough (Daisy Jones & The Six, Zola) and Gina Gammell and co-written with first-time writers, Franklin Sioux Bob and Bill Reddy. The production of WAR PONY is a story of collaboration, with the directors working closely with members of the Pine Ridge community to shine a light on the Native voice and portray the gritty realism of growing up on a Reservation in modern-day America. At the film’s heart are two remarkable performances from newcomers Jojo Bapteise Whiting and LaDainian Crazy Thunder.

Awarded the Caméra d’Or at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival for best first feature film, it has gone on to play numerous other festivals such as SXSW, and was the Surprise Film during last month’s Glasgow Film Festival, receiving a wealth of positive reviews.


Stunning, tender, and utterly compelling, WAR PONY tells the interlocking stories of two Oglala Lakota men coming of age on the Pine Ridge Reservation.

At 23, Bill (Jojo Bapteise Whiting) just wants to make something of himself. Whether it’s siphoning gas, delivering goods, or breeding Poodles, he is determined to carve his way to the “American Dream”. Meanwhile, 12-year-old Matho (LaDainian Crazy Thunder) can’t wait to become a man. Desperate for approval from his young, unavailable father, a series of destructive decisions turns Matho’s life upside down. He finds himself unequipped to deal with the harsh realities of the adult world.

A powerful tale of life, hope, and belonging on the Reservation. Featuring spellbinding performances from first-time actors Jojo Bapteise Whiting and LaDainian Crazy Thunder, and created over a period of several years, in collaboration with members of the Pine Ridge Reservation.


War Pony opens in the UK and Ireland on June 9th. For more information about this stunning film, you can find it here.
