NIGHT, don’t miss our Opening Night Sneak Preview of Mike Ott’s “LiTTLEROCK”, one of the best reviewed indie fictions of the year!  “When her rental car breaks down on a site-seeing tour of California, a young Japanese woman winds up stranded in a small desert town. The excitement of the new permeates every frame of this intimate evocation...”  That’s Friday night, Aug 5 at the Museum of the Moving Image! (LiTTLEROCK opens @ Cinema Village Aug 12)
