Documentary Screening: "L’autre Joséphine" by Philip Judith-Gozlin
France | 2008 | 64 minutes
In French with English subtitles
The film will be presented by Lionel Cuillé, teaching professor in French and Director of the cultural center "French ConneXions."
Behind the nudity of this sculptural "Ebony Venus" Freda Joséphine Mac Donald was a committed artist, a convinced militant and the mother of a multicultural family. With the passing years she fought for numerous causes, first glory, then black and oppressed people. This film is the intimate portrait of a mixed blood African American woman, a less known side of Joséphine Baker. A woman born in the USA, one of the precursors of a political and democratic change.
Free - Open to all
Presented by: cultural center French ConneXions at Washington University in St. Louis
