Event Details

The Farmington Cinematheque Series presents Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter, Saturday, February 6, at 7 p.m., in the Little Theatre.

            In this darkly comedic odyssey, Academy Award nominee Rinko Kikuchi stars 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 a popular film she’s mistaken for a documentary, fixating on a scene where a suitcase of stolen cash is buried in the desolate, frozen landscape of North Dakota.  Believing this treasure 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, populated by eccentrics and elevated to sonic heights by a Sundance award-winning score from electro-indie outfit The Octopus Project, that will leave audiences rooting for the impossible.

            The Farmington Cinematheque Series is sponsored by the San Juan College Henderson Fine Arts Center, the San Juan College Library, and KSJE Radio.  It features documentaries and independent films not released on a national level.

            Tickets are $5. This film is unrated.

            For tickets or further information, call the San Juan College Box Office at 566-3430.
