A Good Man follows internationally-acclaimed director/choreographer Bill T. Jones (Last Supper at Uncle Tom's Cabin, Still/Here, FELA!) as he and his company create their most ambitious work, an original dance-theater piece in honor of Abraham Lincoln's Bicentennial. Through two tumultuous years, we witness raw moments of frustration as Jones struggles to communicate his vision to his dancers and collaborators, as well as moments of great exhilaration when movement transcends the limitation of words.
Jones and his company come face to face with the unresolved contradictions about race and equality. A Good Man is a window into the creative process and, indeed, the creative crisis of one of the world's most enduring, provocative artists as he explores what it means to be a good man, to be a free man, to be a citizen.
