The Marina del Rey Film Festival returned for their ten-year anniversary and featured the premiere of Nico Santucci‘s Sarogeto.  The #MDRFF was dubbed a “Top 100 Best Reviewed Festivals” in the country and created by Jon Gursha and Peter Greene.

@SarogetoTheFilm is the story of a complicated and emotional struggle that Japanese American Grace/Minami Stanton (Ikumi Yoshimatsu) faces. It’s a film filled with relevant and thought-provoking subjects such as spirituality, mental illness, and depression. Sarogeto is one of the first movies allowed to film in The Aokigahara Forest (The Suicide Forest) in Japan. Additional locations include Tokyo, Laguna Beach, Marina del Rey and Newport Beach. The film is partially subtitled in Japanese, with the majority in English.

Sarogeto stars Eric Roberts, Ikumi Yoshimatsu, Winsor Harmon III, Ruby Park, Koji Niiya, Aki Aleong, Angelica Bridges, Tyler Ghyzel and Derek Warburton. Original scores and music created by Martin Tillman, Jakob Balogh and Keaton Simons.
