“Jazz on Film” series at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, June 3-24

The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston will host the fourth edition of the annual “Jazz on Film” series from the 3rd to the 24th of June.


The series is curated by independent film curator, artist, writer and filmmaker Peter Lucas and showcases features exploring the long relationship between jazz and cinema through special screenings of films that feature jazz as soundtrack, subject or both.


This year’s program kicks off with a 35-mm presentation of Shadows (1959) directed by John Cassavetes, which features music by Charles Mingus, on the 3rd of June at 7 p.m. Another Cassavetes film, Too Late Blues (1961) is also features in the program. The film stars Bobby Darin as a jazz musician and revolves around his tumultuous relationship with his band and his girlfriend, a would-be singer.


Other highlights of the series are All Night Long (1962), an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello set in the ’60s London jazz scene and the 2016 documentary by Sara Fishko, The Jazz Loft According to W. Eugene Smith on the famed New York City based photographer.
