A24 has released the first trailer for “Woman Walks Ahead,” in which Jessica Chastain plays a painter who travels west to paint the famous Chief Sitting Bull.

Catherine Weldon (Chastain) heads out of New York to paint Sitting Bull (Michael Greyeyes) just as tensions start to boil between the Lakota reservation and the U.S. Army, so many perceive Weldon’s travel as a threat.

“They all think that you and me are planning some kind of uprising,” Chastain says in the trailer. “The only battle I’ve ever fought against is insignificance.”

“Woman Walks Ahead” also stars Sam Rockwell and Ciaran Hinds. It was directed by Susanna White and written by Steven Knight.

The biographical drama first premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2017. It will premiere exclusively on DirecTV Cinema on May 31 and will hit theaters on June 29, 2018.
