Culture Course Film: the Merchant of Venice

Join us to watch Shakespeare’s ‘The Merchant of Venice’ : “Shakespeare wove together two ancient folk tales, one involving a vengeful, greedy creditor trying to exact a pound of flesh: the other involving a marriage suitor’s choice among three chests and thereby winning their mate. Jewish moneylender Shylock seeks a literal pound of flesh from his Christian opposite, the generous, faithful Antonio, meanwhile, Portia must steer her lover Bassanio toward the correct chest and then seek to defend his friend Antonio from Shylock’s legal suit”
