Littlerock

USA/English & Japanese with English subtitles (83 mins)

Alberta Premiere! When their car breaks down on a site-seeing tour of California, Japanese students Atsuko and Rintaro are stranded in a small desert town. Exhilarated by her sudden freedom, Atsuko decides to extend her stay (much to the consternation of her traditionally conservative brother, Rintaro) and finds friendship, romance, and what promises to be a new home. But as she pulls back the layers on paradise, she discovers a different America than the one in her dreams.

Racking up awards everywhere (including the Audience Award at AFI Fest Dallas, the 2010 Gotham Award for ‘Best Film Not Playing at a Theatre Near You’, and the 2011 Independent Spirit ‘Someone to Watch’ Award for director Mike Ott), Littlerock is a breath of fresh air on the indie film scene – a fish out of water story that definitely does not get ‘lost in translation’…

In English & Japanese with English subtitles.
