Urbanworld Film Festival 2015
Get to know Urbanworld’s 2015 film slate full of incredible documentaries, narratives, shorts and feature films . Screenings will take place from Wednesday September 23 through Saturday evening when we close with A Ballerina’s Tale, directed by Nelson George, on September 26 at 8:30pm.
The film is an intimate look at a crucial period in the career of principal dancer Misty Copeland of American Ballet Theatre (ABT). It follows Misty from her triumphant lead performance in Igor Stravinsky’s Firebird at New York’s Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center through her painful injury and recovery that followed, to her return to ABT and subsequent pop cultural icon status. After the screening, there will be a Q&A with Copeland and George. Learn more about our film slate by visiting Urbanworld.org.
