LINSANITY, the documentary film about the rise of Asian American basketball player Jeremy Lin, will have its Florida premiere screening on Thursday, October 3rd, and in theaters the following day October 4th 2013. Directed by Evan Jackson Leong, the film premiered earlier this year at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
LINSANITY traces Lin’s life from his childhood in Palo Alto, California to his rise to prominence in 2012 with the New York Knicks in the NBA. It shows him overcoming discouragement and racism and achieving success through his faith and desire.
Jeremy Lin came from a humble background to make an unbelievable run in the NBA. State high school champion, all-Ivy League at Harvard, undrafted by the NBA and unwanted there: his story started long before he landed on Broadway.
