Punching at the Sun
The debut feature directed by Tanuj Chopra (SoA '06, film division)
South Asian immigrant culture, post 9/11 politics, interracial relationships, violent streets, and the American firestorm of hip-hop culture all mix into a fierce concoction in Tanuj Chopra's vibrant and spirited first feature, Punching at the Sun. Set in Elmhurst, Queens, Punching at the Sun was featured at the 2006 Sundance and Tribeca Film Festivals and won the 2006 best narrative film prize at the San Francisco Asian American International Film Festival.
Featuring a Q&A with Chopra after the film.
