A Ballerina’s Tale
Few places are so filled with power as the world’s leading ballet companies. Only one percent of all aspiring ballerinas manage to get there, and of them, only a proportion of African-American dancers get there. Misty Copeland is one of the few in classical ballet and the first African American woman to receive the title of prima ballerina. In A Ballerina ‘s Tale we get to follow her story of a pioneering career filled with setbacks – but it’s also a film about the power of will and that talent can open new doors even in the most closed of worlds.
