Demme has crafted some of the most beloved musical-performance films of all time, including “Stop Making Sense” and “Neil Young: Heart of Gold.”

In his latest such effort, he trains his lens on Italian jazz-fusion saxophone player Enzo Avitabile for a film that is a documentary on the musician’s life and, through the lively score, a celebration of his art.

The film is distributed by Waterville’s Shadow Distribution. Not Rated. Running time: 1:19 

Showing at Portland Museum of Art: 6:30 p.m. Friday; 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
