Matt Reynolds' The Great Chicken Wing Hunt (2013): One Man's Quest
American expatriate, international journalist and upstate New Yorker Matt Reynolds forsakes a successful life in Eastern Europe, compelled by a singular obsession: find the world's best Buffalo wing. Joined by his long-suffering Czech girlfriend, a perplexed Slovak film crew, and a ragtag gang of wing-obsessed misfits, Reynolds embarks on The Great Chicken Wing Hunt. After 2,627 miles and 284 varieties of wings, the quest ends in the very countryside of Reynolds' childhood, where he discovers that the perfection he has sought so hard to find was right under his nose all along.
Q&A with director Matt Reynolds, some of the film's characters, and the chef behind the winning sauce (via Skype). The winning sauce, as chosen by Wing Hunt's six judges is also being shipped in for a Buffalo Wings tasting following the Q&A.
