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. Don't just think Bollywood; the festival incorporates everything from cult classics and independent art-house films to documentaries and features. 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.
