I am truly honored to have Amir Khan on the show today.

I read Amir’s latest book, “Comedies of Nihilism: The Representation of Tragedy Onscreen”, which will be the focus of our discussion today.

I highly recommend to all China Rising Radio Sinoland fans to read Amir’s very engaging and informative book about all-things movies. For film hounds, it’s a must! It is available in ebook and print format below. If you don’t have the money, ask your local library or school to order it. They have annual book buying budgets and LOVE it when readers make requests.

After listening to our discussion and hopefully reading his book, like me, you will likely go see movies in the future with new eyes and a fresh perspective on cinema, and what it all means to modern culture. We discuss how it all relates to the headlines, the “Woke” movement, identity politics, imperialism, the deep state and more.
