Chat with the Zellner Brothers About 'Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter' in Indiewire's Facebook Q&A

David and Nathan Zellner spent a decade making their offbeat drama “Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter,” a mesmerizing portrait of a woman who thinks “Fargo” was real. Now you can ask them all about it.
On Friday, March 27, the Zellner brothers are participating in an Indiewire live Facebook Q&A (which operates much like a Reddit AMA) to answer all of your pressing “Kumiko” questions.
“Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter” was inspired by the urban legend of a Japanese woman named Takako Kunishi. In a pre-internet age, the local media reported that a Tokyo-based office worker had died in Minneapolis in search of the suitcase of cash Steve Buscemi’s character buries beneath the snow at the end of “Fargo.”

The Austin-based Zellner brothers also directed “Kid-Thing,” “Goliath” and numerous short films.

Just pop over to Indiewire’s Facebook page at 3pm on Friday to participate. 
“Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter” expands nationwide on March 27.
