The Taiwanese-American basketball player Jeremy Lin features in the HBO documentary short 38 at the Garden, which has been nominated for an Oscar.
The documentary follows New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin’s remarkable 2012 season. Lin, an undrafted Harvard graduate, scored 38 points at Madison Square Garden against the Los Angeles Lakers, confirming his hot streak and the “Linsanity” craze.
38 at the Garden honors a turning point in Lin’s life and highlights a global phenomenon that went beyond basketball. The video contrasts the pride that the Linsanity era afforded Asian-Americans with the recent rise in anti-Asian sentiment.
