AILEY, Jamila Wignot's Vibrant Portrait of Dance Visionary Alvin Ailey, Opens Through NEON on July 23



AILEY, a vibrant look at the incredible life and work of dancer and choreographer Alvin Ailey opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, July 23.

Many know the name Alvin Ailey, but how many know the man? Ailey’s commitment to searching for truth in movement resulted in pioneering and enduring choreography that centers on African American experiences. Jamila Wignot’s resonant biography—a hit at Sundance and soon to be seen at the Tribeca Film Festival—grants artful access to the elusive visionary who founded one of the world’s most renowned dance companies, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Told through Ailey’s own words and featuring evocative archival footage and interviews with those who knew him, the film interweaves the creation of a new commission inspired by his life to show the enduring power of Ailey’s vision.
