Dosa Hunt

Dosa Hunt

Directed by Sam Carroll and Amrit Singh, 2012, USA, 0:23, English

 

The South Indian crepe-like dish known as a dosa becomes the focal point for an unlikely brotherhood's exploration of Indian American culture and society. A simple hunt through Queens and Manhattan quickly transforms into a timely meditation on the nature of transculturation in America as seven 'music men' snake their way through countless shops and restaurants, trading stories, barbs, verbal acrobatics, antics and each of their own senses of community. Supported by an all star soundtrack and sharp wit, this short film turns the 'food exploration show' on its head as the dosa quickly rides shotgun to the exploration of being Indian in America.
