Misty Copeland doc screenings in Toronto



UPDATE (November 1):
The Wednesday 6 pm and Thursday evening showings of A Ballerina's Tale are SOLD OUT. If you already booked your ticket online, you're ok. If not, you can try standing in line for a returned ticket. I was informed that "if you get there early enough" your chances are good to get a ticket, but when I inquired what "early enough" was, they said "an hour before". There are still some seats available for the Wed. 915 showing.


A Ballerina's Tale
TORONTO PREMIERE at the Bloor Cinema
Doc Soup: Hot Docs' monthly screening series that presents Festival hits and award-winning docs.
In 2013, Misty Copeland was given the lead role in the American Ballet Theatre’s (ABT) production of Igor Stravinsky’s Firebird. The night of the performance she danced beautifully, but once off stage Misty discovered she had six fractures in her left shin. Many doubted she would dance again. A Ballerina’s Tale is an intimate look at Misty during a crucial period in her life, from the triumph of Firebird and the painful recovery to her return to ballet and emergence as a pop sensation. Shining a light on important issues in the world of ballet, including the absence of women of colour and the detrimental focus on skinny bodies, A Ballerina’s Tale is a remarkable story of how great talent and willpower can open doors in a very exclusive world.
Director Nelson George will be in attendance to introduce the film and take part in post-screening Q&As.
