Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter Coming To VOD & Digital HD June 19, Blu-Ray June 30

A truly inventive, and critically-acclaimed, film is coming your way soon, and this is one you should really get hold of when you can.

Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter is a fantastic genre-bend that follows a young woman who mistakes a movie for a kind of cinematic, documentary-style treasure map. She becomes obsessed with her discovery, and follows it to North Dakota, where she believes she will find a bag full of cash.

A journey film, and a strange kind of, “Well, this is life,” comedy, the film has received a lot of attention and praise.

Check the trailer below, and don’t forget about this one.


Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter



Coming to VOD & Digital HD on June 19th & to Blu-ray on June 30th


In this darkly comedic odyssey, Academy Award nominee Rinko Kikuchi ( Babel, Pacific Rim) 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.

Cast: Rinko Kikuchi, Nobuyuki Katsube, Shirley Venard, David Zellner, & Nathan Zellner
Directed by: David Zellner
Written by: David Zellner & Nathan Zellner
