    Recommended Age:

    Alvin Ailey was a visionary artist who found salvation through dance. 

    An immersive portrait told in his own words and through the creation of a new commission inspired by his life, Ailey fully profiles this brilliant and enigmatic man who, when confronted by a world that refused to embrace him, was determined to build one that would.

    This screening will be followed by a discussion with special guests.
