About Maika: The Girl From Another Galaxy

After losing his mother to illness and his best friend to an unexpected move, a young boy discovers a crashed spaceship and makes a new friend with awesome powers (although she does need a little help with her earthly social skills). Together, they embark on a zany, fun-filled adventure while taking on the bad guys and helping Maika find her way home. Written and directed by Sundance Film Festival alumnus Ham Tran (Journey from the Fall, 2006 Sundance Film Festival), Maika is inspired by the 1978 children’s TV show from Czechoslovakia of the same name. With gorgeous scenery, a fast-paced narrative, and charismatic performances, this Vietnamese sci-fi film for kids touches on universal themes of friendship, family, and compassion. [105 mins; comedy, sci-fi; Vietnamese with English subtitles]
