A selection of film clips and shorts featuring Josephine Baker, the American black entertainer of the 20s and 30s who spent most of her career in Europe as a result of U.S. racial restraints. Scheduled for screening are several short films of Baker in revue performance (including The Siren of the Tropics, on which a young Luis Buñuel assisted), plus a sequence from the 1935 Princess Tam Tam, considered Baker’s best straight film role. Eastman House curator Jan-Christopher Horak, who compiled this rare archival selection, will be on hand to introduce the program.
