CAAM Fest is here!
Formerly the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, the revamped CAAM Fest is a celebration of food, music, and, of course, films. Thursday night’s opening film is Linsanity, and the program over the next 10 days looks to be exciting.
Contributor Preeti Mangala Shekar brings us interviews with two influential filmmakers Mira Nair, and Deepa Mehta.
This year, Mira Nair brings The Reluctant Fundamentalist to CAAM Fest:
Deepa Mehta renders Salman Rusdie’s Midnight’s Children to the screen:
We talk to Professor Pushpa Iyer of the Monterey Institute of International Studies, and her student Raymond Aycock about a recent trip they undertook to the western Indian state of Gujarat to investigate the real story behind the most modern state in India.
With Hosts Preeti and RJ.
