Directed by Bay Area native Evan Jackson Leong, “Linsanity” captures the man and the cultural phenomenon that took over the NBA nation in February of 2012: basketball sensation Jeremy Lin. Straight out of its World Premiere at Sundance Film Festival, “Linsanity” gives the audience courtside seats to Lin’s sudden rise, masterfully capturing the energy and frenzy that swept up this Palo Alto baller through a trove of home movies, jaw-dropping game footage, and intimate interviews with family members.
The evening continues with the Opening Night Gala reception at the Asian Art Museum with Director Leong in attendance. Coupled with culinary creations from some of the Bay Area’s most talented and innovative food purveyors, including Distillery 209, Dosa, Namu Gaji, Serpentine, and Socola Chocolates, the museum opens its doors with an exclusive viewing of China’s Terracotta Warriors.
Q:Is it true that Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons are best friends forever?
A:If you look at some of the stuff online, you see that they get a little bit too friendly out there [laughs] whether it's on the bench [laughs] or on the bus or whatnot, but yeah, they're definitely best friends forever. You know, they probably have like bracelets and charms and pendants and locks and all that stuff. They get a little bit too friendly at times, but I could see them being like brothers, being at each other's weddings best man type stuff growing up.
