Storyline

Mockumentary on the first annual World Wide Frybread Association's Arizona State Chapter Championship, a two day event in Flagstaff. The event is receiving extensive media coverage as Arizona News Network's own native American reporter Tracey Lightning will be on location reporting. It, which will have extremely strict regulations, will consist of four preliminary rounds on the first day, with the four winners moving onto the final round the second day. Frybread is a staple of indigenous cuisines, including native American cuisines. The winner will receive not only bragging rights as to making the best frybread in the state, but will receive $10,000 and will represent the Chapter at the national championship in New York City.

A mock fry bread competition delights!
6 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

The giggle factor in this film is huge. By the time I left the theater my jaw hurt from laughing so much. This tongue in cheek look at an Arizona Fry Bread Competition gently mocks Native American stereotypes. The cast of Arizona actors(most of them Native American) was excellent. Each character was fully developed and watching the story of the competition unfold was quite entertaining.The director clearly had a handle on what he wanted to say...and he says it in a gentle way.The surprise ending takes us to a place where we do ponder a darker side of the human spirit.Even though some of these characters are arrogant,full of themselves,ridiculous and pompous,they are all likable because this director knew how to cast. Good show!
