The Dark Horse (2014)
Thursday 30th July 2015
Inspired by a true story, Koch Media is proud to announce the release of emotive drama The Dark Horse, on DVD 10th August 2015 and available digitally 3rd August 2015.
Starring Cliff Curtis (Whale Rider, Once Were Warriors) in a remarkable career redefining performance, alongside rising star James Rolleston (Boy), The Dark Horse is an inspiring and heartbreaking film based on the true story of charismatic New Zealand chess champion Genesis Potini.
Plagued by mental illness and a difficult relationship with his brother, Genesis overcomes his personal demons to inspire local disadvantaged youths with his infectious love of chess. Setting up the Eastern Knights chess club - a club that still exists today - Genesis provides hope for a group of children who have none; in turn finding his own purpose in life.
A provocative, emotionally-charged drama, catch The Dark Horse on DVD or on-line this August in the UK.
