Josephine Baker shown with The Taste of Dirt
Sun, March 29 @ 5:30PM -- 263-Macy

Josephine Baker: Black Diva in a White Man's World

A tender, revealing documentary about one of the most famous and popular performing artists of the 20th century. Her legendary banana belt dance created theatre history; her song "J'ai deux amours" became a classic, and her hymn. The film focuses on her life and work from a perspective that analyses images of Black people in popular culture. It portrays the artist in the mirror of European colonial clich├ęs and presents her as a resistance fighter, an ambulance driver during WWII, and an outspoken activist against racial discrimination involved in the worldwide Black Consciousness movement of the 20th century.

Dir. Annette von Wangenheim, 45 mins, 2006, GermanyEnglish/French/German with English subtitles.

The Taste of Dirt

It's 1970. Lisa, the 7-year-old gifted-child of an Afrocentric mother, is having a hard time fitting in at an all-white school. After an altercation, Lisa's mother decides to transfer her to the neighborhood school. The powerful lessons Lisa learned on the playground of her first school help her to make a difficult choice as she tries to fit in at the neighborhood school.

Dir. Yvonne Welbon, 12 mins, 2002, USA English
