Nov 6: Program 11 – Closing Night: The Tiger Hunter
(Comedy Drama Feature) Sometimes, your father can be a tough act to follow—particularly if he’s a legendary tiger hunter in India. Our CLOSING NIGHT presentation is the Canadian premiere of award-winning THE TIGER HUNTER, set in the 1970s and the story of Sami Malik—a young Indian who travels to America to become an engineer, impress his childhood crush, and live up to the legacy of his father (the abovementioned tiger hunter). 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 and her family that he’s far more successful than he truly is…or perhaps ever could be. This Kickstarter-funded project from director Lena Khan features Danny Pudi (Community), Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Karen Malik, Rizwan Manji (Outsourced), and won the Grand Jury Prize for Narrative Feature at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival 2016.
