Amazon released the trailer for the award winning satire film Get Duked! (originally titled Boyz in the Wood) written and directed by Ninian Doff that is set to debut on Amazon Prime Video on August 28.
Set deep in the Scottish Highlands, Get Duked! is an anarchic satire of generational politics, hip-hop- loving farmers and hallucinogenic rabbit shites that pits the youth of tomorrow against the status quo of yesterday.
The film stars Samuel Bottomley, Rian Gordon, Lewis Gribben, Viraj Juneja, Kate Dickie, Kevin Guthrie, Jonathan Aris, Georgie Glen, Alice Lowe, Brian Pettifer, with James Cosmo and Eddie Izzard.
Dean, Duncan and DJ Beatroot are teenage pals from Glasgow who embark on the character-building camping trip — based on a real-life program — known as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, where foraging, teamwork and orienteering are the order of the day. Eager to cut loose and smoke weed in the Scottish Highlands, the trio find themselves paired with strait-laced Ian, a fellow camper determined to play by the rules. After veering off-path into remote farmland that’s worlds away from their urban comfort zone, the boys find themselves hunted down by a shadowy force hell-bent on extinguishing their futures. From writer-director Ninian Doff — making his feature debut after a slew of award-winning music videos and short films for artists including Run the Jewels, The Chemical Brothers, Miike Snow, Migos, and Mykki Blanco — comes an anarchic satire of generational politics, hip-hop-loving farmers and hallucinogenic rabbit droppings that pits the youth of tomorrow against the status quo of yesterday.
Get Duked! has won multiple awards including Siren Award – Lund International Fantastic Film Festival, The Best International Feature Film 2019; Audience Award – Midnights – SXSW 2019; and Just Film Grand Prix for Best Youth Film – Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival 2019.
