BASKETBALL, MERI JAAN centers on the life of Yeshodhara, a vibrant woman who immigrated to the United States from India thirty years ago. The film illustrates how her lifelong love of professional sports has served as a vehicle to create a community and sense of belonging for herself. For an Indian immigrant twice displaced, home is where the hoops are as she builds a strong and special connection with the local sports community. The documentary was made by Veena Hampapur of UCLA about her mother.
