Directed by Jamila Wignot; Ailey is a new documentary about American dance pioneer Alvin Ailey,

Promising an immersive look at Ailey’s life and career; Wignot’s film offers commentary/interviews with George Faison, Judith Jamison and Ailey himself.

Not that I went especially frequently, but seeing movement like the kind in this trailer reminds me of how much I miss the theatre.

I of course don’t mean musicals, ‘I simply can’t’ with most of those. It’s great plays and brilliantly choreographed dance that I look forward to most. The latter always has me wishing that I too enjoyed total mastery of my physical body.

I want to see this one because I’ve heard of Ailey before, but I know very little about him. I look forward to the story, all the awe-inspiring movement and all the truth/emotion conveyed through dance.

Ailey Release Dates: July 23rd, 2021 (US)…

Happy Film Loving
