Opening Night of Jonathan Demme’s Rarely Seen Cinema: Jenny Lumet Selects
Lena Horne, Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, Cab Calloway, and Fats Waller are only some of the acts featured in this showcase of the great African-American entertainers of the early 1900s, during an era when these performers rarely appeared in lead roles in mainstream Hollywood productions. The relationship between a World War I vet who aspires to be a dancer (Robinson) and a popular singer (Horne) grounds the spectacle in story.
Join us following the film for a discussion with Jenny Lumet.
