Aspiring filmmaker Evan Jackson Leong needed a documentary subject, and high school basketball player Jeremy Lin fit the bill. What Leong could never have imagined in his wildest dreams was Lin’s sudden, meteoric rise to planetary NBA sensation in 2012 as the New York Knicks’ backup point guard. Before “Linsanity” took the world by storm, Leong was there to capture every step of this legend in the making. (Digital presentation)

To celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month 2014, IU Cinema showcases “Movement,” a series of Asian Pacific American films. “Movement” invites audiences to consider the multifaceted vibrancies and complexities of Asian Pacific American individuals and communities. It implies evolution and transformation. And it denotes the physical and literal (athletic prowess, international migration), the metaphorical and interior (psychological, emotional), and the social and political (the rise of celebrity, grassroots organizing).

The series is sponsored by IU’s Asian Culture Center, Asian American Studies Program, Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs, Departments of History, Department of Communication and Culture, College of Arts and Sciences, Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity in Society, IU GLBT Student Support Services Office, and IU Cinema.
