USA | 2021 | 82’ | 12A | Jamila Wignot

Alvin Ailey was a trailblazing pioneer who found salvation through dance. This documentary traces the full contours of this brilliant and enigmatic man whose search for the truth in movement resulted in enduring choreography that articulates the Black American experience with grace, strength, and unparalleled beauty. Told through Ailey's own words and featuring evocative archival footage and interviews with those who intimately knew him, this film weaves together a resonant biography of an elusive visionary.

“Ailey and his movements… are a pure expression of Black joy and truth… with the dancers’ outstretched hands reaching towards a more perfect future that seemed very much on the horizon.” Observe
