Director Cathy Yan‘s indie breakout Dead Pigs is the Sundance award-winning comedy that comes out on February 12.

We have seen Cathy Yan’s directorial work in last year’s anarchic villain caper Birds of Prey, but now she will feature Harley Quinn’s fantabulous emancipation. The filmmaker’s debut feature Dead Pigs premiered at Sundance in 2018 (where the film won the World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award for Ensemble Acting), gets its global release on Friday, and EW can exclusively reveal the dark and funny indie’s trailer.

“It feels a little bit like going back to my roots and going home,” to be talking about Dead Pigs again, three years after its festival premiere, Yan tells EW. “I am deeply proud of the film. It feels good to finally get it out there, and hopefully, it doesn’t feet dated at all. I don’t think it does… If anything, the last crazy four years that we’ve had since I actually made the movie [have made] me see the whole movie in a different light, too.”

The original comedy takes inspiration from a true story from 2013 in which thousands of dead pigs were found floating down the Huangpu River, near Shanghai. “I was really intrigued by the network effect of it,” says the writer-director.

The first is Old Wang (Haoyu Yang), a pig farmer who loses his livelihood in the strange crisis and gets desperate to finish with his debts.

The little lives of its characters, Yan’s empathetic and hilarious film connects with questions that have haunted American life for the past year for the whole existence of “American life. “Where do we go if we just continue to worship money, and money is the only thing that we really hold dear?” she says. “What are the things that make us human, whether it’s love, or family, or just dignity?”

Dead Pigs will be ready to hit MUBI on February 12.
