A Good Man

Bill T. Jones has spent a career at the vanguard of politics and dance, often using his choreographic talents to explore issues of race and sexual orientation.

A Good Man tracks Jones through the exhilaration and frustration of developing his major 2009 dance-theatre piece Fondly Do We Hope. Fervently Do We Pray, a reflection on the legacies of his childhood hero, Abraham Lincoln.

Bob Hercules and Gordon Quinn's documentary reveals the charismatic Bill T. Jones as a man divided, torn between the promise of the civil rights movementĀ - the revolutionary force that drove his early artĀ - and the pragmatics and inequalities of the modern age.
