Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films. Linsanity

In February 2012, an entire nation of basketball fans unexpectedly went 'Linsane.' Stuck in the mire of a disappointing season, the New York Knicks did what no other NBA team had thought about doing. They gave backup point guard Jeremy Lin an opportunity to prove himself. He took full advantage, scoring more points in his first five NBA starts than any other player in the modern era, and created a legitimate public frenzy in the process. Prior to this now-legendary run, Lin had faced adversity in his career at every turn. He wasn't offered a scholarship by any major university, nor was he drafted by any NBA team after a standout collegiate career at Harvard.

Reviews

“The magic of the documentary “Linsanity” isn’t so much that it captures the stranger-than-fiction rise of
Jeremy Lin from basketball nobody to NBA stardom. It’s that it makes you feel as if you could be watching someone you know — a brother, cousin, best friend — and that the moments being captured are as authentic as the New York Knicks jersey hanging from Lin’s shoulders.”

“After watching the film, you will feel like you have known Jeremy Lin your whole life.”
