Description

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 and 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 four years, in collaboration with members of the Pine Ridge Reservation. "A rousing tale of love and money" - ★★★★ The Guardian "An elegantly dust-blown coming-of-age story...tells complex narratives with lyricism and charm" - ★★★★ The Telegraph "A raw authenticity rarely found in film depictions of reservation life" - ★★★★ Time Out
