YULI

YULI is the nickname given to Carlos Acosta by his father Pedro.

From a young age, Yuli fled any kind of discipline and education; the streets of a run-down neighborhood in Havana was where he learned most of his schooling. But Pedro knows his son has natural talent and forces him to attend Cuba's National Dance School.

Against his will and despite his initial indiscipline, Yuli ends up being captivated by the world of dance, and from childhood he will begin to forge his own legend, as one of the best dancers of his generation, often breaking taboos and becoming the first black artist to dance Romeo in the Royal Ballet in London, where he forged a legendary career as a principal dancer for 17 years.

Not Rated. Running Time: 115 Minutes

PLEASE NOTE: YULI is in Spanish with English subtitles
