Squeal – Watch the trailer for the new dark fairytale

Filmmaker Aik Karapetian’s dark fairytale SQUEAL centers on Samuel (Kevin Janssens), who is far from home, searching for his father. Lost in remotest Eastern Europe, on the edges of a mythical forest, a minor road accident leads to a chance meeting with a pig farmer’s daughter Kirke (Laura Siliņa). Sam soon learns that his priorities must change if he wants to survive. Her initial hospitality is a smoke screen to capture him and make him a forced laborer on the farm. Alone, unable to speak the language, and chained up 24/7 with the pigs, he learns to adapt.
Fortunately, a seemingly magical piglet gains Sam’s confidence and shows him the way to freedom and true love.

Directed by Aik Karapetian, the film stars Kevin Janssens, Laura Siliņa, Aigars Vilims, Normunds Griestiņš, Juris Bartkevičs and Guntis Pilsums.

Squeal will open theatrically in NYC (Alamo Manhattan) and LA (Laemmle Music Hall) and on VOD on major platforms in the US and Canada on August 19.
