Director: Mike Ott
"A small gem of miscommunication and hopefulness." - Filmmaker Magazine
Brother and sister Rintaro and Atsuko have travelled from Japan to America, and their broken-down rental car has stranded them in the archetypal small town of Littlerock, California. They fall in with the instantly smitten Cory, whose straightforward life revolves around smoking, drinking and hanging out with a group of similarly minded misfits.
With an improvised, vérité style, LiTTLEROCK is a clever fish-out-of-water indie film with a wit to match its gentle spirit. An audience hit at festivals around the world, the film won its co-writer and director Mike Ott the Someone To Watch award at the prestigious Independent Spirit Awards earlier this year.
"Tender, affecting, and unexpectedly funny." - indieWIRE
