Sundance 2021: Three Documentaries—featuring Cultural Icons Rita Moreno, Alvin Ailey and Valerie Taylor—to Inspire You

The first in a series of reviews from the 2021 Sundance Film Festival focused on films directed by women.

This year, I was lucky to watch three biographical documentaries directed by women—Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go For It; Ailey; and Playing with Sharks that focus on the lives of cultural icons Rita Moreno, Alvin Ailey and Valerie Taylor, respectively.
