Populated by eccentrics, this darkly comedic odyssey stars Academy Award nominee Rinko Kikuchi (Babel, Pacific Rim) as Kumiko, a frustrated Office Lady whose imagination transcends the confines of her mundane life. Kumiko becomes obsessed with a mysterious, battered VHS tape of Fargo, fixating on a scene where a suitcase of stolen cash is buried in the desolate, frozen landscape of North Dakota.  She embroiders a map to the treasure and, believing it to be real, she leaves behind Tokyo and her beloved rabbit Bunzo to recover it—and finds herself on a dangerous adventure unlike anything she’s seen in the movies. With Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter, indie mavericks the Zellner Bros. spin a strangely touching underdog fable that will leave audiences rooting for the impossible. Elevated to sonic heights by a Sundance award-winning score from electro-indie outfit The Octopus Project.  (Partially subtitled)
