THE CRUMBLES is an indie rock slice-of-life tragicomedy about Darla and Elisa, two young women struggling to catapult their talented but directionless garage band to stardom. Featuring an up-and-coming cast and music by Grammy winner Quetzal Flores, this lighthearted romp across the east side of Los Angeles offers a fun and realistic portrait of what it's like to be in a fledgling band. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the 2012 San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival.
