Yuli - The Carlos Acosta Story Plus Q And A Live From The Royal Opera House (15) 115mins

Screening at Kino Rye and Kino Hawkhurst on Wednesday 3rd April at 7pm. Tickets on sale now

Streaming live from the Royal Opera House, this event combines a special screening of the film followed by a live-streamed Q&A with director Iciar Bollain, writer Paul Laverty (I, Daniel Blake), producer Andrea Calderwood (Last King of Scotland) and dancer/choreographer/actor Carlos Acosta (Don Quixote ROH Ballet and Our Kind of Traitor).

Yuli is a biopic, based on Acosta's autobiography No Way Home: a Cuban Dancer's Story. Acosta grew up in Cuba and went on to become a legend in the dance world including lead ballet dancer at the English National Ballet and the first black dancer to perform some of the most famous ballet roles of all time. The film follows his relationship with his father, who gave him the nickname Yuli, and encouraged him to leave his country and forge a career on the international stage.

Directed by Icíar Bollaín and written by Paul Laverty (I, Daniel Blake), the film won best screenplay at the San Sebastian International Film Festival and received five nominations for the Spanish ‘Goya’ awards including Best New Actor for Carlos Acosta, Best Cinematography and Best Adapted Screenplay.

 

'the film gives clarity and context to the dance, while the dance gives the story texture’  The Guardian

'it’s a pleasure to watch Acosta move and the snatches of archive footage remind us to be grateful that he never gave up’  The Financial Times

'Writer Paul Laverty fills the talented cast with believable words that capture not just the pain, hope, loneliness and longing of the Acosta family, but the political climate of late 20th century Cuba'  The List

'heartbreakingly perfect' *****The Times
