Poster for Talent Has Hunger

"Talent Has Hunger": Saturday, February 1st / 7pm

a film about music, passion and the struggle for perfection

TALENT HAS HUNGER is a documentary about the power of mastery of an instrument, and the gift of performing great music. Filmed over 7 years in Boston, the film focuses on the challenges of teaching gifted young people the intricacies of playing the cello. Its universal themes about talent and dedication will resonate with all. Equally compelling is the portrait of world-famous master cellist/teacher, Paul Katz, of the New England Conservatory, who inspires his young students to achieve their potential. He will be on hand to introduce the film, and to take questions from the audience 


Finally, Leo Eguchi, a JP-based teacher and cellist with the Pops, Boston Ballet and Sheffield Chamber Players, will lead a concert of  young cellists-in-training as you enter the building. They will demonstrate the burgeoning talent of our local classical musicians, and serve as a real-time demonstration of the film's central themes.

A Video Valentine for JP from Rick Berlin

Rick Berlin is a Boston institution. Not just because he is a renowned rock musician, with a decades-long history of launching great bands, and writing and performing compelling songs. But also because he was a fixture at Doyle’s as one of its longest tenured waiters (started in 1989) till it closed. There’s more: turns out he is also a videographer- documentarian, and he’s been pointing his camera at his beloved neighborhood of JP for awhile. 


JP Movie Night is proud to present an evening of film and music by Rick. We’ll show a few of his many videos about JP, based on his interviews with local community members, business folks and neighbors. His work reminds us how fast neighborhoods change. We’ll see some of Rick’s great music videos. The evening will also include Rick’s video tribute to Doyle’s.

Welcome to Roxbury

A  compelling documentary from last year's Roxbury International Film Festival, this film presents  Roxbury, as it was, is, and will be. Greetings from Roxbury covers life in the community from the late 1950s to the present, coming alive through on-camera interviews with residents who tell their story with thoughtfulness and generosity.  The film addresses the invisible line separating whites from African-Americans in that neighborhood, and its consequences, esp. in the years since the Civil Rights movement.

About JP Movie Night

JP Movie Night History

image6

JPMN was founded by two neighbors - Shailah and Jason - who regretted that JP lacked a place for folks to gather to watch movies in the neighborhood. So, in late 2018, they started presenting films to the public, primarily movies they found that were made and owned by the filmmakers themselves.  They screened movies at Doyles till it closed.

JP Movie Night Details
