Tiger HunterFilm Screening of The Tiger Hunter on Thursday, March 29, 2018, at 7:00 p.m. in HECC 2019.
The Film Studies Program, the Muslim Faculty Network, and the Glasscock Center’s South Asian Workshop present a free campus screening of the hit 2017 comedy, The Tiger Hunter. The Tiger Hunter is the story of Sami Malik, a young Indian who travels to 1970s America to become an engineer in order to impress his childhood crush and live up to the legacy of his father—a legendary tiger hunter back home. When Sami’s job falls through, he takes a low-end job and joins with a gang of oddball friends in hopes of convincing his childhood sweetheart that he’s far more successful than he truly is…or perhaps ever could be. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this “[w]inner of multiple awards, including best director and best ensemble cast… at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, Khan’s fish-out-of-water comedy… consistently resonates with genuine affection and abundant authenticity.”
Free pizza and soft drinks will be provided and there will be a discussion of the film’s themes of immigration and cultural identity following the screening. For more information on the film, visit: https://www.thetigerhunter.com/.
