Presented in partnership with Houston Cinema Arts Festival running November 9-13. See http://hcaf17.org for full schedule information.
Directed by Robert Philipson
USA, 2017, 58 min Documentary
American popular music is known to become great through cross-cultural encounters, yet the relationships between African Americans and American Jews historically expose the deepest dichotomy between fraternity and conflict…that is until the American jazz standard, "Body and Soul," forged a fortuitous bridge.
In director Robert Philipson’s first feature-length documentary, Body and Soul: An American Bridge, we develop a better understanding of how one of the most recorded songs in the jazz repertoire came to fruition, breaking the color barrier in popular music.
