The Linsanity team would like to invite you to join them and their efforts as they aim to make the opening of the film, Linsanity, a success around the country.  

The film focuses on Jeremy Lin as we are given a brief, but intimate glimpse of life before the flashing cameras of wild paparazzi and screaming fans. Linsanity traces Jeremy’s life from Palo Alto, CA to his rise with the New York Knicks. The film engages audience with his battles and his victories as well as how he manages to deal with his growing fame. The film encompasses important themes relevant to Jeremy such as his Asian American identity.

Historically speaking, Asians in America have not been given the proper or even requisite respect in terms of culture and identity, thus carrying negative stereotypes that have evolved to become a stigma that affects Asian Americans. But today, Jeremy Lin emerges as a steward, capable of breaking these negative stereotypes just as he broke the NBA record for most points scored in the first five career starts. Jeremy’s story serves as an inspiration and proves to audiences, and the entire world, that Asian Americans are more than what stereotypes say, and we can in fact fight through the barriers to achieve our greatest dreams.
