 An immersive portrait of dance pioneer Alvin Ailey, told through his own words and a new dance inspired by his life.

"Wignot handles details of the legend’s tumultuous biography with great care, honoring his talents while acknowledging the toll they took on him. But perhaps the greatest gift of this tightly conceived and beautiful doc lies in its appreciation of the divinity of dance."

—Lovia Gyarkye, The Hollywood Reporter
