All attendees to the Cinema Unbound Awards at the Zidell Yards Drive-In are invited to stay and watch a special screening of Minari for FREE immediately following the Cinema Unbound Awards presentation (8 pm).
Minari: A tender and a sweeping story about what roots us, Lee Isaac Chung’s Minari—winner of the 2020 Grand Jury Prize at Sundance—follows a Korean-American family that moves to an Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amid the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.
