(1988, USA/Japan, DCP, 99m) dir Fran Rubel Kuzui. NEW RESTORATION! “Wish you were here … “ After receiving a postcard from Japan emblazoned with the phrase, bleach-blonde Wendy (Carrie Hamilton, daughter of Carol Burnett) hops on a plane and checks into a hostel for gaijin. Penniless, she soon takes work as a hostess before meeting Hiro (played by real-life Japanese rock star Diamond Yukai, also seen in Lost In Translation) whose band is anxiously awaiting their big break. A charming tour through bubble-era Japan, when the world ran on credit and credit ran on dreams, from Fran Rubel Kuzui (Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Featuring title art by Keith Haring and a cameo by metal band X Japan and original songs by various local bands Red Warriors, Rin Kotogawa, and more.
