"Gives voice to the silent protest in Ailey's heart that did not have an audience..."Sheri Flanders, Chicago Reader

"Wignot masterfully weaves the present with the past in a way that causes her movie to surge with urgency." —Oliver Jones, Observer

Ailey traces the full contours of this brilliant and enigmatic man whose search for the truth in movement resulted in enduring choreography that centers on the Black American experience with grace, strength, and unparalleled beauty. Told through Ailey’s own words and featuring evocative archival footage and interviews with those who intimately knew him, director Jamila Wignot weaves together a resonant biography of an elusive visionary.
