CAAMFest has officially released early bird ticket sales for its opening night films and events, "Linsanity" and gala (Thursday, March 14, 2013, 7pm at the Castro Theatre and 9:30pm at the Asian Art Museum) along with New Directions launch "Dosa Hunt" with a special set by Indian Bastards from Hell, featuring members of Das Racist (Thursday, March 21, 2013, 6pm at the Asian Art Museum).
Directed by Bay Area native Evan Jackson Leong, "Linsanity" captures the story behind basketball sensation Jeremy Lin, who became a cultural phenomenon last Februaray.
Straight out of its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, the documentary film gives the audience courtside seats to Lin’s sudden rise, masterfully capturing the energy and frenzy that swept up this Palo Alto baller through a trove of home movies, jaw-dropping game footage and intimate interviews with family members.
The evening concludes with an Opening Night Gala reception at the Asian Art Museum with Director Leong in attendance. Coupled with culinary creations from some of the Bay Area’s most talented and innovative food purveyors, including Distillery 209, Dosa, Namu Gaji, Serpentine, and Socola Chocolates,
the Museum opens its doors with an exclusive viewing of China’s Terracotta Warriors.
