It is the clash of the twenty-first century, as frybread makers compete for the first-ever, First Annual State of Arizona Frybread Championship. Twenty-two Native American frybread makers, representing all twenty-two tribes in Arizona, come together under one roof to see who is the state’s best frybread maker. The film takes a larger than life turn in the final round as the four finalist battle for pride, prize money and a trip to the National World Wide Frybread Association Championship in New York City.
This is the hottest contest on earth! It will leave audiences laughing out loud and hungry for some fantastic frybread. This is the ONLY feature-length film devoted to the love and passion of frybread!
An after-party will follow the screening, with a performance from Dey & Night.
About the Filmmaker: Travis Holt Hamilton is one of a very small handful of filmmakers, if not the only one, who makes successful contemporary Native American films outside the Hollywood system. He wrote his first full-length feature script while deployed in a combat zone with the United States military in the Middle East. When he returned home, he went to work to do whatever it took to turn his script into a film. Four years later he released the Navajo hit film Turquoise Rose.
