An international celebrity at age 19 and the highest paid female performer in the world, Josephine Baker rose from a poverty- stricken background in St Louis, Missouri, USA, to become the celebrated darling of Paris.
Josephine found fame and a vast fortune in France where talent was all that mattered and colour was not a barrier, as it had been back in America. She broke part of that barrier by becoming the first African-American female to star in a major motion picture, Zouzou, and again when she refused to perform if a venue had any racial discrimination policies.
During World War Two she became a member of the French Resistance, moving freely under the noses of the occupation forces. She was as daring in her role as a spy, as she was in her stage performances. Pretending they were part of her band or a choreographer, she would take Resistance fighters from one place to another, hide vital information on her body and even carry sheet music covered in additional information written in invisible ink.
After the war and having been accorded highest civilian honours, Josephine began adopting her “Rainbow Tribe” of diverse children and by the time she finished, she had gathered a dozen.
Focusing on the personality of this generous and groundbreaking artist and her commitment to children, and featuring exclusive interviews and insights to a legendary performer, this is a uniquely in-depth profile of a most endearing and complex human being.
