THE GREAT CHICKEN WING HUNT is a comedic documentary about Buffalo Wings and their place in American culture, directed by American journalist Matt Reynolds, in collaboration with Slovak director Zuza Piussi. It follows a ragtag cast of characters searching for the best Buffalo wing, including a Hawaiian chef, a competitive eater, a Slovak film crew and Reynolds’ girlfriend, Lucie. The film documents the wing phenomenon and explores the popularity of hot wings and the nature of perfection. The team travels 2,627 miles, tries 284 types of wings, and deliberates for two days before picking a winner.
