The Persian Circle cordially invites you to this week’s session:

Dr. Farrokh Asadi presents “Judith”

a film adaptation of Bertolt Brecht’s “The Jewish Wife” that he directed. The film is 52 min. long and in English. It was selected by and premiered in Brazil’s International Brecht Symposium this past May, 2013 (see the website for the Director’s Note). It is an honor to have him speak for us, and I hope to see many of you there!
