    "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) Written, Directed, Produced by Amrit Singh. Directed, Edited, Produced by Sam Carroll. Edited, Produced by Zoe Schack. SYNOPSIS 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 then Stereogum's Executive Editor (now REVOLT TV host) Singh -- on a quest to find their hometown's best dosa. The delicious traditional South Indian crepe has earned this long-overdue cinematic closeup. But our our heroes' journey -- bantering in an Indian disco van, eating their way through the 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. Called “sharply funny” by New York Magazine, “part No Reservations, part Big Brother part something smarter” by Interview Magazine, and “a short film about the Indian community’s growth and search for cultural roots in the US” by The Times Of India, DOSA HUNT is a snapshot of a transitional generation in America's immigrant/art experience, in hot pursuit of good food. Set to a killer soundtrack.
