See this film: Nathan the Wise [with live score] at the Coolidge

Back in 1922, with WWI fresh in everyone's minds, the young film director Manfred Noa made the silent film Nathan The Wise, an adaptation of an 18th century Gotthold Ephraim Lessing play about the title Jewish merchant who brokered a treaty between belligerents during the Crusades. To acknowledge the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the Goethe-Institut and the Coolidge Corner Theatre will screen this prescient and passionate plea for tolerance and peace. The After Quartet will perform a score by Boston-based composer Aaron Trant. That's at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline | Sunday, September 11 @ 11 am | $10 | 617.734.2501 or
