A free screening of “The Crumbles” will be presented on Saturday, Jan. 25, at 7 p.m. at the Japanese American National Museum’s Tateuchi Democracy Forum, 111 N. Central Ave. (at First Street) in Little Tokyo.
Directed by Akira Boch, “The Crumbles” is an indie rock slice-of-life tragicomedy about Darla and Elisa (played by Katie Hipol and Teresa Michelle Lee), two young women struggling to catapult their talented but directionless garage band to stardom. Called “elegant and affectionate” by The Los Angeles Times, this lighthearted romp across the east side of L.A. offers a fun and realistic portrait of what it’s like to be in a fledgling band.
Winner of the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the 2012 San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, it features music by Grammy winner Quetzal Flores. The cast also includes Jeff Torres, Ebony Perry, Seth Millwood, Adrian Torres, Eugene Lee and Amy Hill.
Cast and crew members will be in attendance. Beer reception to follow, sponsored by Lagunitas Brewing Company.
