An Evening with Director Lena Khan and “The Tiger Hunter”

Sami Malik travels from India to the U.S. to become an engineer — both to impress his childhood crush and his father, a legendary tiger hunter. But when his job falls through, he takes a low-paying job as a draftsman and, with an oddball gang of friends, embarks on a scheme to convince his sweetheart that he’s more successful than he really is.

It’s a classic tale of love, laughs and the American Dream.

“The Tiger Hunter” premiered at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival in 2016 and won the grand jury prize for best narrative film. It’s set to open in theaters across the U.S. on Sept. 22.

Come join us Wednesday, Aug. 30 at the Japanese American National Museum for a screening of “The Tiger Hunter” and an up-close discussion with director Lena Khan, actor Danny Pudi and others.

Fox 11 anchor Susan Hirasuna will moderate the discussion on how the movie was created and the ideas behind it.
