Paying Homage: Josephine Baker’s “Zouzou” (1934)


As the first African American woman to star in a major motion picture, Josephine Baker gives LIFE to Zouzou. This French production provided Baker the opportunity to be forever remembered as a legend. In conservatory we were taught a plethora of different acting games, one which included talking like zombies in a totally nondescript language, an invented language if you will. I now understand why. French is not a language that I understand, but watching this movie made it evident that I didn’t need to. I enjoyed it just the same and I hope you do as well. Merci beaucoup!! C’est bon film.
