Linsanity is an inspirational story about a humble athlete who succeeds in the NBA against all odds and expectations. A state high school champion, all-Ivy at Harvard, but overlooked and undrafted by the NBA, Jeremy Lin beat the odds to become an unlikely national sensation and one of the biggest stories in sports history. The movie played to an overwhelmingly positive reception at the Sundance Film Festival and SXSW.
Chicago Taiwanese American Professionals, JAConnect, and JACL in collaboration with the Harvard Club, FAN, KACC, Harvardwood, TIPS, AIRMW, and NU-A5 are proud to present an opening weekend private screening of Linsanity: The Movie. The screening will be followed by Q&A and discussion with the producer of Linsanity, Brian Yang.
The film documents Jeremy’s life for several years, capturing never-before-seen footage of him at the highest and lowest points in his basketball career. Chicago TAP is supporting the movie because we think Jeremy doesn’t just break records, he breaks stereotypes. The movie will be shown in a few cities opening weekend and if it does well, AMC will keep it and expand it. If it doesn’t, it will be pulled. Our screening will contribute towards the national box office and help make it possible for others to experience Linsanity! This event is made possible by financial support from GFCBW-Chicago.
