"THE GREATEST HUNT FOR SOUTH INDIAN FOOD IN NYC EVER COMMITTED TO FILM! "
DOSA HUNT, A Film By Amrit Singh.
Starring: Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend), Vijay Iyer (Vijay Iyer Trio), Ashok Kondabolu (Das Racist), Alan Palomo (Neon Indian), Amrit Singh (Stereogum), Himanshu Suri (Das Racist), Anand Wilder (Yeasayer)
DOSA HUNT is a short film by Amrit Singh featuring a diverse group of music-world friends -- Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij, Das Racist's Himanshu Suri and Ashok "Dapwell" Kondabolu, Yeasayer's Anand Wilder, Neon Indian's Alan Palomo, jazz pianist Vijay Iyer, and Stereogum's Executive Editor, Singh -- on a quest to find their hometown's best dosa. The traditional South Indian crepe is delicious enough to have earned this long-overdue cinematic closeup. But our heroes' journey -- bantering in an Indian disco van, visiting restaurants and grocery stores of Manhattan and Queens -- also explores the shared and respective cultures of this vibrant group of NYC artists in the wilds of their city. DOSA HUNT is a snapshot of a transitional generation in America's immigrant/art experience, in hot pursuit of good food.
