    2010. USA. Directed by Mike Ott. Screenplay by Ott, Atsuko Okatsuka, Carl McLaughlin. With Okatsuka, Cory Zacharia, Rintaro Sawamoto. During a pilgrimage to the Manzanar internment camps, where thousands of Japanese Americans were imprisoned during World War II, a Japanese brother and sister find themselves stranded in Littlerock, California. They spend the night drinking beer at a motel with some local kids, communicating in broken English and silent gestures, and with a tender and humorous awkwardness. Featured at more than fifteen international film festivals, from San Francisco to Egypt to Reykjavik (where it won the Audience Prize), Littlerock marks Ott as a filmmaker to watch and Okatsuka as a wonderful new screenwriter and actress. 84 min.
