This story about the vastly gifted ballet dancer Carlos Acosta and his boyhood in the poor quarters of Havana, Cuba has been nominated for Best Film, Feature, Screenplay and Cinematography awards at a host of festivals. Preternaturally brilliant, Acosta just wanted to be like the other kids, and when offered the opportunity to perform overseas was “the only Cuban who wanted to stay in Cuba”. Forced and even beaten by his father into pursuing his craft, he went on to become the UK Royal Ballet's first black dancer. This is a treat for lovers of ballet, and dance of all sorts, and is an inspiring story in itself, with dazzling dance scenes and an emotional recapturing of Acosta’s boyhood, and his overcoming of racism and bigotry.
