A comedy film that follows four city boys on a wilderness trek. They are trying to escape a mysterious huntsman. Set in the Scottish Highlands.
Writer and Director Ninian Doff discusses the significance of the phrase “Get Duked!”
The boys in our film are in the Highlands as part of a real-life program called the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, which is kind of like Scouts. The film is actually somewhat autobiographical in that I went on one of these camping trips with my friends when I was a teenager. In the film, on their hike they find themselves hunted by a demonic duke. “Get Duked!” is the phrase they chant as they fight back against this aristocrat and his cronies. It’s like an invented slang term that essentially means screw the system, screw the overbearing authority and take charge yourself. I like that it’s a phrase people can use after watching the film.
The movie will be available on Prime Video on August 28, 2020.
