Film Reviews
News Story  November 17, 1995
"...Reviving that world may have been the most important thing about this film for screenwriter-director Franklin (One False Move). While he stages the genre material efficiently enough - the obligatory slugfests and gunfights are crisp and the scenes of confrontation are adequately tense - he doesn't give them the spark of other, less plot-oriented sequences: making small talk in a store below a speakeasy, sharing food and drink at a kitchen table with a grieving man, panning past crowds of African-Americans bustling along Central Avenue..."

Texas Book Festival 2018: Meet the Indie Next Authors
Faves R.O. Kwon, Tommy Orange, and Nicole Chung get personal
DAILY Arts  October 28, 2018, by Rosalind Faires
"...Their books might not have a great deal in common on the surface – The Incendiaries follows two college students who wrestle with radicalization and loss of faith, There There is a multi-perspective novel about Native Americans living in Oakland, and All You Can Ever Know charts its author’s experience as a transracial adoptee – but Depp deftly found common ground for the panelists with questions about the intimate nature of their work, the way all three books play with structure, and the experiences Kwon, Orange, and Chung share as nonwhite authors surrounded by a very white literary canon. Kwon recounted her youthful lightbulb moment, realizing that she didn’t have to have white protagonists: “Oh, Korean food can be in a book!” Orange admitted that working on something as personal as There There was scary, but that he took comfort in the fact that “the people close to [him] know what’s true.” Chung shared her worries resulting from the fact that “scarcity is the norm” – there are so few Korean-American memorists or stories about and by transracial adoptees, and she wants to be clear that she is sharing her own specific experience, not speaking for everyone...."

Screens Story  January 4, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...Alongside Park Chan-wook, Snowpiercer director Bong Joon-ho has become the most recognizable name in Korean cinema for American audiences – so much so that Netflix not only financed his latest, Okja, but has given it the big awards season push. But where Park (The Handmaiden, the Vengeance trilogy) always fostered a twist of the high gothic in his work, Bong's characters are blue-collar underdogs: store workers, secretaries, fast-food vendors...."

How Smart Is Your City?
Interactive panels dive into the data
Screens Story  March 9, 2017, by Beejoli Shah
"...Part of the problem may lie in their branding. Austin's pitch early on included self-driving cars, electric fleets, and "connected corridors" along stretches of roads and highways – exactly the sorts of touch-of-a-button services residents likely envision when they imagine a smart city – all intended "to improve access to jobs, education, healthcare, healthy food, and other areas of need." But at their core, smart cities aren't a mesh network of optimized consumer services, they're a trove of constant data collection; data collection that, in theory, cities can then use to adapt those consumer-facing services in real time...."

(The project has also forced temporary relocation of a number of other events and festivals: the Reggae Festival, the Urban Music Festival, shows at South by Southwest, a number of city races, and C3's own Austin Food & Wine Festival, currently on the calendar for the last weekend in April.)..."
