This documentary salutes the life and accomplishments of the late dance champion and AIDS activist Ian (Ernie) Horvath. After a successful career as a professional dancer and founding artistic director of the Cleveland Ballet, he became a fierce advocate for creating a more secure future for American dancers and their companies. Horvath was also a passionate AIDS awareness activist during the crisis of the ’80s, most prominently by helping arts organizations with employees suffering from the disease. The virus tragically claimed his life in 1990. As a tribute to Horvath, dancers from across the country collaborated to perform his last choreographic work for this film, restaged in Seattle by Pacific Northwest Ballet soloist (and the film’s co-director) Margaret Mullin and Paul Gibson.
