'Kumiko' film with south Washington County scenes expected to be shown in Twin Cities this year
For one film, the road to the prestigious Sundance Film Festival went through “Fargo” and the Twin Cities suburbs of south Washington County.
“Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter” features scenes that were shot last year on farmland in Cottage Grove, multiple Newport locations and the Afton Alps ski area. The film recently screened at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won a U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Musical Score.
Now the question is: When do Minnesotans get to see it?
