Synopsis Made for $40, 000 with a cast and crew of Cassavetes' friends, Shadows won five awards at the Venice Film Festival. The film is a touching, bittersweet coming-of-age story, involving tense racial issues, set in the New York jazz world of the time. The acting style seems improvisational, and the shooting style is like that of contemporaneous cinema verite.
