A much-acclaimed documentary will be screened Saturday at Our Lady of the Lake University. The film focuses on what's called honor killing. Mary Ann Smothers Bruni says most Americans have a skewed understanding of what honor killings even are.  

 

 

"The film is about women in Iraq trying to stop honor killing. We always think this is a Muslim thing. I don't agree with that at all,” she said. “When I was at University of Madrid at graduate school, honor killing was considered Roman Catholic and the church did not deny it."

On Saturday, San Antonio's main plaza will be alive with music.

"This is our 6th annual Mariachi Corazon de San Antonio high school groups, festivals, and all-star competition," Jane Pauley Flores says. 

Area high school Mariachi music programs go head to head to determine who's best.

San Antonio Botanical Garden

The San Antonio Botanical Garden opened a new 8-acre addition to the facility on Saturday, including a parking lot that's interesting enough on its own to be called a "parking garden."

Although no new buildings have been completed recently, the San Antonio skyline has seen a dramatic change in recent weeks.
