We want to start off this month’s news letter with a giant thank you. Over the summer we saw the theatrical release of the documentary film LISTEN TO ME MARLON in North America. With a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes (Certified Fresh!) and more importantly a massive audience approval, we couldn’t be more proud. Thank you everyone who came out and supported the film.
Anna Kashfi, who married Marlon Brando in 1957 and gave birth to his first child Christian Devi Brando before divorcing the actor and engaging in a very public, very bitter custody battle, passed away last week. Rest in peace, Anna Kashfi.
