Now in its 10th year, Sapatq’ayn Cinema, the University of Idaho’s festival of Native film, hopes to increase awareness of the artistry and issues important to indigenous people through short film, documentary and mockumentary. Here’s the lineup: 

Search for the World's Best Indian Taco

This film packs a lot into 15 minutes. Writer/director Steven Judd combines comedy, romance and animated effects to tell the story of a grandfather sharing tales with his grandson. One of these stories, about the origins of the grandfather’s hat, leads to the tale of “Three Shades of Black,” a man in search of the world’s best Indian taco. Thu, March 22 at 7 pm. Rated PG

More Than Frybread

Written, directed and produced by Travis Hamilton, this feature length mockumentary does for frybread what Best in Show did for dog shows, following representatives from 22 Arizona tribes as they compete in the first ever Worldwide Frybread Association Arizona Chapter State Championship. The winner receives a trophy, $10,000, a trip to New York City and, of course, bragging rights. Thu, March 22 at 7 pm. Not Rated

Shouting Secrets

How is an estranged family to function when the group’s matriarch, the woman who holds everything together, suffers a stroke? Director Korinna Sehringer explores this topic and the importance of family in her first feature length drama, winner of Best Picture at the 2012 San Francisco American Indian Film Festival. Sehringer will introduce the film. Fri, March 23 at 7 pm. Not Rated

Horse Tribe

The Nez Perce were once one of America’s great horse tribes. But after they lost the War of 1877 against the United States, all of their horses were taken. This documentary followed the Nez Perce for 13 years through the ups and downs they faced while trying to reclaim a part of their culture by bringing horses back to their land. Horse Tribe is followed by a panel discussion with writer/director Janet Kern. Sat, March 24 at 7 pm. Not Rated
