Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter

A Japanese woman was found dead in a Minnesota field in November 2001.  Then word got out that she died while trying to find the missing money hidden by Steve Buscemi's character in the movie, "Fargo."  Why should she have thought that money was real?  Maybe because it says at the beginning of "Fargo" that this is a true story.  But that was just one of the Coen brothers' jokes.   This whole weird story has now inspired another pair of filmmaking brothers, Nathan and David Zellner, to make the new indie film, "Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter."
