JACQUES SCHWARZ-BART, LA VOIX DES ANCÊTRES

By Franck Cassenti

Jacques Schwarz-Bart is a Guadeloupean jazz musician living in New York City. His father André was of Polish origin. His parents were killed in Auschwitz when he was fourteen. He saved some of his family members and became one of the youngest resistant Jews in France. He published his first novel, Le dernier des justes [The Last of the Just], at Éditions du Seuil in 1959. This book became an international success and won the Prix Goncourt. André’s voice is heard through Jacques and his mother, Simone Schwarz-Bart, a great Caribbean author. This film is a journey in time and memory, taking us from Paris to New York and the Caribbean. We see how racial mixing makes up a human being’s fabric and how La Voix des ancêtres shows us the way.
