DOC NYC 2019
American Black, Barcelona LGBT
A portrait of the Broadway song-and-dance man.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
John Carluccio’s film is a portrait of the charismatic song-and-dance man from his tap-dancing childhood to today. Maurice and friends—Chita Rivera, Mercedes Ellington, and Debbie Allen—tell tales from his seven-decade career, including Broadway shows, Hollywood films like Francis Ford Coppola’s The Cotton Club, and about his loving yet difficult relationship with superstar brother Gregory Hines. Ever battling the challenges of being a gay, black man in showbiz, Maurice shares his story with humor and grace.
