Watch the trailer for ‘Kumiko: The Treasure Hunter’

Kumiko the treasure hunter

If Werner Herzog has given his seal of approval, consider us excited for this offbeat, surreal adventure about a Japanese girl who watches the Coen Brothers’ Fargo and travels to America believing to find a treasure buried in the Midwest. Sound on Sight caught up with Kumiko: The Treasure Hunter at last year’s SXSW, then at Sundance London, and then finally at Fantasia Fest, where Justine Smith called it one of the best of the festival. Rinko Kikuchi (Babel, Pacific Rim) stars in David Zellner’s film, set to finally be released in theaters March 18. Watch the trailer below:
