The week in politics, coming to America from Iran, and the art of wuxia films (Oct. 12, 2022) – Houston Public Media

Houston Matters begins at 9 a.m. CT on 88.7FM or listen online. Join the discussion at 713-440-8870, or @HoustonMatters.

On Wednesday’s show: We discuss the latest developments in politics in our weekly roundup.

Also this hour: This month, Rice Cinema is hosting a series of screenings of wuxia films, a genre of martial arts films many Americans best know from 2000’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. We learn more about the genre, what makes it unique, and what contributions it makes to the world of film.

And, with the recent protests in Iran, we revisit a conversation with writer and poet Roya Hakakian. She talks about her experience coming to America from Iran as a teenager and discusses her book, A Beginner’s Guide to America.

Audio from today’s show will be available after 11 a.m. CT. We also offer a free podcast here, on iTunes, Stitcher and other apps.
