Indpendent Lens invites you to Meet the Patels.
Ravi Patel is almost 30, an actor, and, worst of all to his traditional Hindu parents, still unmarried. After he breaks up with his white girlfriend, Ravi submits to his parents' wishes and allows them to play matchmaker. The true-life romantic comedy Meet the Patels explores the influences of culture and identity on the most intense, personal, and important part of one's life — love.
Reception 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Stay after the screening for a comedy show presented in partnership with The Desi Comedy Fest featuring Samson Kolektar, Abhay Nadkarni and Dhaya Lakshminarayanan.
This event is presented by Independent Lens. Local partners include KQED, Center for Asian American Media, Desi Comedy Fest and PianoFight.
