This is the story of the legendary embrace of black American artists with the France of the Roaring Twenties.
A story between two shores, between two wars, between two cultures, between two loves. Paris in the 1920s made Josephine Baker the first international black star. If she alone personifies the joy of living, the insolence and creativity of the Roaring Twenties, at the same time, in the shadow of the icon, a whole generation of black American artists crosses the Atlantic and settles in France.
This documentary was produced on the occasion of the presentation of the exhibition "The Color Line" at the Quai Branly Museum - Jacques Chirac.
