Sunday, September 29, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

In groundbreaking work exploring the global mass culture that’s rapidly displacing US exports, Bhutto, a novelist and author of the acclaimed memoir, Songs of Blood and Sword, offers a lively, inside look at Bollywood, Turkish soap operas, and the South Korean music sensation known as  K-Pop. Showing how these have created a new and easily consumed global popular culture challenging American "soft power", Bhutto profiles Shah Rukh Khan, the world’s most popular movie star; visits the set of Turkey's biggest TV show, watched by 200 million people in 43 countries; and traces how “Gangnam Style” became the first YouTube video to hit one billion views.
