BLACK WARRIOR is a commercial property, a violently graphic dark comedy told in the style of Jordan Peele's Get Out, the Coen Brothers' No Country for Old Men, Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, and David Fincher's Se7en. The story utilizes intense action, cocky "Rez Humor," and violent depictions of real events. This film turns cliché reverence for Native America on its head in favor of a more honest look at the complexity, hilarity, and tragedy of American Indian Rez life.
For the uninitiated, "Rez Humor" is a controversial storytelling aesthetic akin to "Marvin" getting his head blown-off in PULP FICTION and/or Chris Rock's ground-breaking "Black People vs. Niggers" comedy routine. It is a narrative style that draws its roots from the Heyoka - Sacred Clowns, Backwards People, and Contrarians - revered spiritual comic beings from Native America's long erased history.
BLACK WARRIOR uses strong language and dark comedy to explore provocative issues surrounding contemporary American Indian criminal justice, gang culture, Native Nazism, and reservation life. This may trigger issues and emotions currently overwhelming our society.
