This noir flavored film is a classic “band on
the road” movie. It traces a jazz band as it travels from one small-time gig to
another, always hoping for a big break but always denied fame thanks to the
band members’ personal demons. This melodramatic film reaches its climax when an
unrelenting depiction of a murder/suicide retrospectively sets the tone for
this dark film about the strange places music can take us.

Commentary begins at 6:30 p.m.
Film Screening 7:00 p.m.
