Ailey (2021). Directed by Jamila Wignot, 82 min., PG-13

This immersive portrait of dance pioneer and visionary artist Alvin Ailey is told through his own words, archival footage, interviews with those who knew him, and a commissioned dance inspired by his life. “Perhaps the greatest gift of this tightly conceived and beautiful doc lies in its appreciation of the divinity of dance.” (Hollywood Reporter)
