If you're in San Francisco, you're invited to CAAMFest for the West Coast premiere of Dosa Hunt, described as the greatest hunt for South Indian food in New York City ever committed to film.
Directed by Amrit Singh, executive editor of Stereogum.com, the short film puts Singh, pianist Vijay Iyer, and members of Das Racist, Vampire Weekend, Yeasayer and Neon Indian into an Indian disco van on a culinary quest to track down NYC's best dosa.
After the screening, stick around for a filmmaker Q & A, as well as a special set by Indian Bastards from Hell (Heems & Dap of Das Racist). It's all going down Thursday, March 21 at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco. Take a look at the trailer:

"Dosa Hunt," the brainchild of Stereogum.com’s executive editor Amrit Singh, assembles a who’s who of New York’s brown musical cognoscenti (Singh, pianist Vijay Iyer, and members of Das Racist, Vampire Weekend, Yeasayer and Neon Indian) to roam the streets of New York City in search of the best dosa. Singh will be available for a Q&A following the screening. With expanded ventures in music and food, New Directions taps into CAAM’s adventurous spirit to bring this unique approach to the way we experience media.
