USA / 2016 / 94 min
Sami Malek’s father is a tiger hunter; a man who stares danger in the eyes, takes aim and bang. With the same fearless blood running through him, Sami decides to leave his small Indian village to chase the American Dream. But once he arrives in the United States, reality sets in, and he realizes that this will be his grandest adventure yet.
Along the way, he does his best to woo his childhood sweetheart and develops friendships with a lovable and hilarious band of misfits, perfectly played by some of the best South Asian and South Asian American actors today.
Set in the 1970’s, THE TIGER HUNTER is a blast of nostalgia that chronicles the journey of many immigrants to America. Co-Director and Co-Writer Lena Khan’s bold debut feature will be CAAMFest ’s opening film at the Castro theater.
