Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter
The film Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter follows shy and lonely Kumiko, whose obsession with the Coen brothers' film Fargo leads her on a journey from her home in Tokyo to mid-west America in search of a mythical bag of cash. It opens nationwide on April 30, and thanks to Palace Films we've got 10 double passes to give away. Keen? Email jnewsletter@jpf.org.au with your name and address to be in the draw.

Up Next in the JPF Gallery
Our current exhibition, Mono no aware: The Poignancy of Things finishes up on April 11 (last chance, everyone!). We'll be sad to see it go, but we're also looking forward to our next exhibition. Tokyo Gardens: Photography by Naoto Ijichi documents 14 traditional Japanese gardens that still exist today in Tokyo. Tokyo Gardens will run from May 6 - 30, in conjunction with Head On Photo Festival.
