Riley Keough was photographed with her War Pony co-director Gina Gammell at the film’s North American premiere at SXSW on Thursday, held at The Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas.
The 33-year-old actress-filmmaker donned a deep-V-neckline dress with long sleeves and gold bangles in the debut of the film, which tells the “intertwined stories of two young Oglala Lakota men who grew up on the Pine Ridge reservation.” . according to a synopsis.
Keough, the granddaughter of the late Elvis Presley and daughter of the late Lisa Marie Presley, wore her auburn hair loose and parted with gold earrings at the screening, where she posed alongside her collaborator on the project, Gammell.
Gammell wore a Bijou Check cotton ensemble of a short-sleeved shirt and wide leg pants with tan sandals.
The creative, who has worked on projects like Manodrome and Welcome the Stranger, wore her wavy brown hair loose and parted with hoop earrings at the film event.
The outing comes as Momentum Pictures has secured the rights to the film in the US and Canada, Deadline reported on Wednesday.
Keough and Gammell’s offer comes after War Pony presented the film to a global audience last May at the Cannes Film Festival in Un Certain Regard, claiming the Camera d’Or award (for Best First Feature). .
Keough has been in the headlines lately amid an ongoing breakup with grandmother Priscilla Presley over her late mother Lisa Marie Presley’s will.
The actress lost her mother after she went into cardiac arrest at her home in Calabasas, California, in January.
The dispute with Priscilla stemmed from both Keough and his brother Benjamin being named trustees of Lisa Marie’s estate in 2016, after she was the sole trustee for years.
Benjamin died by suicide in 2020, meaning the fortune now belongs to Keough. Priscilla opposes the 2016 amendment and has questioned the authenticity of her late daughter’s signatures on the document.
Family hostility continued in a Los Angeles court this week when Lisa Marie’s ex-husband Michael Lockwood, 61, was awarded full custody of their twin daughters Harper and Finley, 14, following their death at 54 .
Lockwood had been in a contentious seven-year custody battle with Lisa Marie, whose side Riley sided with, as she was upset that she was wasting her half-sisters’ time on him.
Priscilla has been receptive to Lockwood amid recent events as she looks to “be a part of her grandchildren’s lives,” a source told People last month.
Keough has also been busy promoting her new 10-episode Amazon Prime miniseries, Daisy Jones and The Six, which focuses on the 1970s Los Angeles music scene and is loosely inspired by Fleetwood Mac.
The show that follows the rise of rock band Daisy Jones and The Six through the Los Angeles music scene of the ’70s in their quest for global icon status.
The show is based on the New York Times best-selling novel, also starring Suki Waterhouse, Camila Morrone, Sam Claflin, Sebastian Chacon, Josh Whitehouse, Nabiyah Be, and Tom Wright.
The series will feature 24 original songs written exclusively for the series and recorded by the cast. Original music will be released by Atlantic Records during the launch of the series.
The series will debut on March 3, with new episodes released every Friday through March 24.
