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
