Winner of the the Caméra d’Or for Best First Feature at the Cannes Film Festival, War Pony follows the interlocking stories of two young Lakota men on the Pine Ridge Reservation as they grapple with a world built against them. At 23, Bill just wants to make something of himself, while 12-year-old Matho can’t wait to become a man. Bound by their shared search for belonging, each of the boys grapple with identity, family, and loss, as they navigate their unique paths to manhood.
