    DAVID & LAYLA- a Political Romantic Comedy!

    Florida Friday - November 10, 2006     06:45 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.

    Hollywood star Shiva Rose and Director will be present for Q&A.

    DAVID & LAYLA is distinguished by being invited not only by regular film festivals, but also by Political/Human Rights film fests, and by Love/Romantic film fests. 18 Official Selections, 2 Wins. See - Festival Status - at www.NewrozFilms.com.

    "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.

    Tkts $8 online at: www.FLIFF.com. Cinema Pardiso. Ft. Laurdale International Film Festival.

    Nahid Rachlin Persian Girls and Jumping Over Fire

    Friday - November 10, 2006     07:30 PM

    Esteemed writer and professor Nahid Rachlin will read from her memoir and her latest novel. Persian Girls traces not only Nahid’s life, but also the interconnected lives of her aunt, mother, and sisters, in a tale of crushing sorrow, sisterhood, and ultimately, hope. Exuding the melancholy of an outsider, this memoir gives American readers insight into some Iranians' ambivalence toward the United States, a perception of freedom clashing with hegemony. In her novel Jumping Over Fire, Rachlin illuminates the private and public consequences of the Islamic revolution and delivers a clear and complex portrayal of a divided Iran.
