Ailey (12A)

Alvin Ailey was a visionary artist who found salvation through dance. An immersive profile of ground-breaking and influential choreographer Alvin Ailey, founder of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Sensorial and archival-rich, Ailey captures the brilliant and enigmatic man who, when confronted by a world that refused to embrace him, was determined to build one that would.

"Wignot masterfully weaves the present with the past in a way that causes her movie to surge with urgency" -
