Jazz musician John Lurie stars as a down-on-his-luck loser and self-styled New York hipster who is shaken from his mundane and directionless existence by the surprise and quite unwelcome arrival of his sixteen-year-old Hungarian cousin (Eszter Balint). Jarmusch’s 1982, 30-minute short version of the film The New World was shown at EIFF that year. Jim Jarmusch and Sara Driver are guest curators of the EIFF 2011.
