This joyful documentary celebrates two giants of the dance and theatrical worlds: dancer/choreographer/actress Carmen De Lavallade and multi-hyphenate Geoffrey Holder, married to each other for nearly fifty years. Wife-husband team Atkinson (a student of Carmen’s) and Doob (Academy Award-winner for From Mao to Mozart) capture the intimate chemistry between quietly brilliant Carmen and larger-than-life Geoffrey, whose credits include his legendary production of The Wiz.



"Engagingly-chronicled...stands as a fitting tribute to a pair of extraordinary overachievers and as a touching portrait of over a half century of black-on-black love and of lives very well lived." - Kam Williams, News Blaze


"What you see is more than an outstanding, five-decade creative collaboration; it’s one of the dance world’s great love stories, too." - Dance Magazine
