KUMIKO, THE TREASURE HUNTER (USA 2015; NR)

Tuesday April 21, Thursday April 23, Saturday April 25 @ 7:30PM; Sunday April 26 @ 1, 3:05PM.

A lonely Japanese woman (Rinko Kikuchi) living a drab life in Tokyo becomes convinced that the satchel of loot buried in a snowfield by Steve Buscemi in FARGO is actually there. She determines to go to North Dakota and dig it up. This is a touching film with a superb lead performance by Kikuchi. 105 min. English and subtitles.

“A striking film, a bizarre joy and a beautiful delight” – The Playlist.

“A wonderfully strange and beguiling adventure story comprised of buried treasure, hand crafts, and a possibly unhealthy obsession with the Coen brothers” – Variety.

“Kikuchi’s reaction shots are better than most professional actors’ entire reels – her evolving pronunciation of the word ‘Fargo’ is enough in and of itself to make this a truly unforgettable performance”- Film.com.

Direction: David Zellner; screenplay: David & Nathan Zellner.

TICKETS: $6.00 adults, $4.00 seniors, $3.00 Clark students, faculty and staff (with ID) Kumiko the Treasure Hunter
