Production of a 90-minute documentary about photographer W. Eugene (Gene) Smith and the history of jazz in New York during the 1950s.

WNYC, New York Public Radio, respectfully requests a grant of $800,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities for the production of the 90-minute documentary "Gene Smith and The Jazz Loft." The film will tell the story of how one artist obsessively captured the spirit of his new home and workplace at 821 Sixth Avenue in New York City in photos and audio. In doing so, it will provide audiences nationwide with a deeper understanding of key humanities themes; specifically, mid-century American cultural history and the people and processes behind one of this country's greatest musical forms: jazz.
