TAIPEI -- A documentary about NBA star Jeremy Lin will be screened in around 20 cities in the United States from Oct. 4, according to a Thursday report in the Houston Chronicle.
"Linsanity" features Lin's inspirational story, from his childhood to his meteoric ascent to stardom in early 2012 with the New York Knicks that made the 24-year-old Harvard graduate a household name and created the phenomenon from which the documentary takes its name.
Directed by Evan Jackson Leong, the film will be shown first in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, the report said.
Lin, who currently plays for the Houston Rockets, is scheduled to arrive in Taiwan Aug. 14 for a weeklong stay.
During his visit, he will attend a charity event Aug. 15 and take part in various activities arranged by his sponsors.
Lin, the first-ever NBA player of Taiwanese descent, will spend his remaining time with local children at a basketball camp and is scheduled to participate in a Christian evangelical gathering before flying to China Aug. 20.
