Harry Belafonte is not just one of the greatest entertainers of our time; he has led one of the great American lives of the last century. From a poverty-ridden start to against-all-odds movie stardom, Belafonte has broken down racial barriers in Hollywood whilst fighting social injustices off screen. Susanne Rostock’s biographical documentary lets us share in the struggles, the tragedies, and, most of all, the triumphs of this extraordinary icon.
Deeply moving, supremely uplifting and truly inspirational!
