Mingus music in Casssavetes “Shadows” at MOMA

Shadows. 1959. USA. Written and directed by John Cassavetes. Music by Shafi Hadi, Charles Mingus. With Ben Carruthers, Lelia Goldoni, Hugh Hurd. Cassavetes’s vital, poignant, and humorous story of interracial romance and “passing”—often hailed as an American counterpart to Godard’s Breathless (also 1959)—shattered cinematic conventions with its improvisational acting, jumpy editing, and handheld camerawork in the streets, coffee shops, late-night parties, and sculpture gardens of New York City. 87 min.Friday, July 4, 2008, 6:00 p.m., Theater 1, T1Sunday, July 6, 2008, 2:30 p.m., Theater 1, T1
