This year, the Abbe’s annual film series focuses on the changing representation of Native people in film, specifically as Native writers, actors and directors gain more control over telling their own stories. The last film, More Than Frybread, showcases Native storytelling in a mockumentary style film written, directed, and acted with an almost all Native cast and crew. The film tells the story of twenty-two Native American frybread makers, representing all twenty-two federally recognized tribes in Arizona, who convene in Flagstaff to compete for the first ever, first annual, state of Arizona Frybread Championship! A discussion will follow the film. Free and open to the public, made possible by Reel Pizza.
