In the 1990s, Milan Mumin was the lead singer of the hugely influential Serbian rock band Love Hunters, who electrified and gave voice to a generation of Serbians fighting an oppressive regime. LOVE HUNTER stars Milan Mumin as himself in a funny, sweet and inspirational fiction based on his life ten years later, driving a cab in New York City and cobbling together funds to record his dream album. When his bass guitar player suddenly quits, he finds a talented but prickly replacement, and a romantic spark, in a free-spirited guitarist named Kim (Eleanor Hutchins). Just as rehearsals start picking up steam, Milan's longtime Serbian girlfriend Lela (Jelena Stupljanin) arrives with very different plans for their future; she wants him to come home to Serbia where his reputation will let him be anything he wants; but Milan is determined to make his recording, in America, at any cost.

"Love Hunter is consistently engaging, mainly thanks to its star's winning personality." - Hollywood Reporter

"In its feel for nocturnal light, this is one of the most refreshing New York independent features since Ramin Bahrani's Man Push Cart." - New York Times
