Travel back in time and across the Atlantic for a tale about the musicians who left the U.S. to pioneer the jazz age in Paris in the period between the first and second world wars (1920-45). The performance-driven documentary features the stories and music of Josephine Baker, Sidney Bechet, Django Reinhardt and more; based on a book by the late Anthony Shack, a professor of anthropology at Berkeley, whose tome explores an oft-overlooked slice of the African-American cultural experience and its effect on entertainment culture. The film was awarded the Best Documentary Prize during the 2010 Cannes film festival, and the screening event begins with a reception and introduction before the film and will include a discussion with the film's Executive Producer Charles Hobson, director and Emmy Award-winner Dante James. Reception begins at 6:30 p.m.; screening at 7 p.m. Co-presented by Museum of Fine Arts and The Studio@620.
