Going to the Tribeca Film Festival?

Anyone in the New York area this coming week should be aware of the Tribeca Film Festival. One of the films premiering at the festival is an excellent documentary called Theater of War, directed by John Walter, which takes as it's starting point the Public Theater's 2006 Shakespeare in the Park performance of Mother Courage, and goes on to explore the life of Berthold Brecht, the relationship between war and art, the nature of theater... it's expansive, and really effective. The version I've seen wasn't yet quite the final cut, but it was pretty great. Well worth checking out if you're in the area. If you're not, well, hopefully it'll come to you soon. Check here for showtimes.

Why am I mentioning this? Because I designed the poster (seen above), of course.

Brecht spelled his name Bertolt, but the American newspapers and the House Un-American Activities Committee spelled it the way you spell it: Berthold. His parents named him Eugen Berthold Friedrich Brecht. Brecht-trivia.
