For his short film Dosa Hunt, music critic Amrit Singh assembled a who’s who of NYC’s musical cognoscenti, representing popular groups like Das Racist, Yeasayer, Vampire Weekend, and Neon Indian. Banded together in a disco van, they search for the ultimate dosa. Equal parts culinary adventure, portrait of Indian American musical talent, and commentary on cultural politics, Dosa Hunt is an insider’s jaunt through South Asian Americana.
After the West Coast premiere of Dosa Hunt, stay for a Q&A with filmmaker Amrit Singh and a special set by Indian Bastards from Hell (featuring members of Das Racist). Enjoy delicious treats and the company of the terracotta warriors. Cozy up with a beer courtesy of Sapporo. Cash bars will be open throughout the event as well as a special menu by Cafe Asia. Food trucks will also be on hand to stage a dosa hunt of your own.
