Paris Noir: African Americans in the City of Light
Thursday 10th May 2018 | Paris Noir: African Americans in the City of Light

Paris Noir: African Americans in the City of Light is the most comprehensive and compelling documentary existing on the remarkable migration of pioneering African Americans to France and the impact both cultures had on each other.

Weaving stories and themes from World War I, the Jazz Age of the 1920s up to the German occupation of World WarII, Paris Noir is thought provoking storytelling that resonates in today's social and political climate. More than a historical documentary, Paris Noir reveals the beginning of worldwide assertion of African American culture.

Directed, written and edited by critically acclaimed documentary filmmakers Joanne Burke and David Burke, Paris Noir blends rare photographs and archival footage, exciting period music, and insightful commentary by leading scholars and experts.

Door open at 6.30pm. Film starts at 7pm
