The film War Pony is about “23-year-old Bill, a Oglala-Lakota native navigating growing up on a reservation, all while always trying to find his next hustle.” After the screening, applause reportedly lasted for a whopping 6 minutes.
“We’re really just grateful to be here,” Riley told People. “This was a collaboration between all of us, and this is all of our film. I’m very overwhelmed. I haven’t really taken it all in yet. It’s been wonderful … we’re just excited,” she added.
The screening also premiered the new film Elvis, an upcoming biopic about the “Burning Love” singer starring Austin Butler. Austin and Priscilla made a surprise appearance together at the 2022 Met Gala,
