Jungle Jazz: Public Enemy #1

USA, 2000 (MIFF 2001, Experimental)

Director: Frank Fitzpatrick

Jungle Jazz combines an excellent new Jazz soundtrack with footage from several classic Soundies (the short films that were produced in the 1940s to accompany the popular songs of the day). Also invoking the spirit of 1950s propaganda scare films it is a clever and historically interesting work.
