Presented by the Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Music and the American Cultures and Global Contexts Center.

American filmmaker John Cassavetes made the 1957 film SHADOWS on the cheap and purportedly on the fly-- the film claims to be a largely improvised, complete with a soundtrack by jazz bassist and composer Charles Mingus. The film focuses on romance between an African-American woman, Lelia, (Lelia Goldoni) and a white man, Anthony (Anthony Ray). Ralph Lowi (graduate student in Ethnomusicology) and Rob Wallace (Ph.D. Candidate, English) will introduce the film. Refreshments will be provided! Free admission!

This event is co-sponsored by the IHC.
