The Japanese American National Museum will host a special screening of Lena Khan’s film, "The Tiger Hunter", on Wednesday August 30th, which will be followed by a Q&A with Khan and lead actor Danny Pudi.
“The Tiger Hunter” tells the story of Sami Malik, played by Danny Pudi, who travels from India to the United States to become an engineer, in hopes of impressing his childhood crush and his father who is a legendary tiger hunter. However, Malik’s goal does not go as planned and is forced to take a low paying job. He, along with his quirky group of friends decide to convince his crush that he is more successful than he really is.
"The Tiger Hunter" premiered at the 2016 Los Angeles Asian Pacific American Film Festival where it was presented with the Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Film. The move is set to open in US theaters on September 22nd.
