    DAVID & LAYLA at Ft. Lauderdale Int'l Film Festival

    Florida Friday - November 3, 2006     02:00 PM

    Persian actress "Shiva Rose (Layla) excels as a self-reliant damsel in distress worth rooting for." VARIETY.
    From an impossible romance, a hope (a fantasy!) for peace: David & Layla- a Jewish Muslim Romantic Comedy. Set in New York, inspired by a true story. "This new comedy about young loves and the large ethnic families (on both sides) that stand between them could have been just another My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but its originality and insight set it apart. This outright charmer by Jay Jonroy has the potential of being a broad crowd-pleaser, along the lines of My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Only David and Layla is a superior variation on that film, with unexpected insights…” Joe Baltake.

    This interpretive performance will showcase historically-based Iranian garments and backdrop created by Shenasa, symbolic props, along with interactive storytelling with the audience.



    Also featured in the performance is Oakland-based performance poet Roham Shaikhani, and

    writer Azin Arefi.
