The Zellners’ latest film KUMIKO, THE TREASURE HUNTER starring Rinko Kikuchi premiered in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at Sundance 2014 and internationally at the 64th Berlinale. It was nominated for two Independent Spirit Awards (Best Actress and Best Director) and will be distributed by Amplify Releasing in 2015. Kumiko focuses on a Tokyo office worker (Rinko Kikuchi) who becomes obsessed with a fictional movie that she mistakes for a documentary. Fixating on a scene where stolen cash is buried in North Dakota, she travels to America to find it.
The opening night’s events will wrap-up with the official opening of the fest by MWFF Director Jerry LaBuy, including the announcement of the festival award winners and a detailed description of the weekend’s events.
