Paris Blues film screening

February 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Harn Museum

The Center for European Studies presents: All That Jazz: Europe, the Cold War, and Race

Introduction & Discussion by Lisa Booth

Starring Paul Newman, Sidney Poitier, Joanne Woodward, and Diahann Carroll; featuring the music of Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong

This film explores the lives of two ex-pat American jazz musicians (Newman & Poitier) living in Paris after WWII and the choices they must make after encountering two vacationing American women (Woodward & Carroll). Shot on location in Paris and featuring cameos by Louis Armstrong, the film subtly addresses the state of civil rights in the US and considers the dilemma of living abroad to be free versus remaining “at home” to work for freedom.

The Center for European Studies presents this program in partnership with the UF African American Studies Program, the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, Political Science, and the UF International Center.
