John Cassavetes’ debut feature Shadows is a landmark film, generally considered to be the first genuinely independent American feature. It also pioneered a radical new film language based on improvisation and has one of the greatest jazz scores in film history by Charles Mingus and Shafi Hadi. Set amongst the lively milieu of artists and jazz musicians in bohemian 1950s New York, Shadows follows the doomed relationship between a young mixed-race woman Lelia and Tony, a white man who betrays his prejudice when he meets Lelia’s brother, a struggling jazz singer.
