Platinum Movie: Black Ballerina (2016)

Friday, October 18, 2019

Set in the world of classical dance, Black Ballerina tells the stories of amazingly talented black ballerinas from several generations who face racism, exclusion, and unequal opportunity while pursuing their dreams to dance. Interviews are combined with stunning archival footage and photography to explore how the challenges of the past still exist in the ethereal world of ballet today. The film includes the story of Joan Myers Brown, artistic director of Philadanco, featured this season at the Publick Playhouse.
