San Francisco South Asian Film Festival returns to Palo Alto

From India to Pakistan to Sri Lanka, the San Francisco South Asian Film Festival presented by 3rd i brings movies from South Asia and the diaspora to Palo Alto's CineArts Theatre, 3000 El Camino Real, on Sunday, Nov. 1.

Among the selections playing in Palo Alto this year are "A Thin Wall," a documentary about the 1947 partition of India and subsequent violence and displacement, and "Jai Ho," which takes a look at the musician A.R.Rahman, the so-called "Mozart of Madras" who composed the soundtrack to "Slumdog Millionaire." Film screenings begin at noon. Tickets are $10 per film, or $38 for all four films (available online only). For tickets go to goo.gl/oL16bX. For more information, go to thirdi.org.
