Carmen & Geoffrey is a 2005 documentary directed by Linda Atkinson and Nick Doob. The documentary follows the careers of two intriguing and remarkable personalities: Carmen de Lavallade, a dancer and choreographer from California who moved to New York City with Alvin Ailey to build a modern dance legacy in America, and her husband Geoffrey Holder, a Trinidad born choreographer, costume and set designer, painter and general man about town who made such productions as The Wiz. This documentary features interviews and footage from performances. Interviewed are there friends and colleagues such as the dancers Judith Jamison, Gus Solomons Jr., Dudley Williams, Ulysses Dove, and Alvin Ailey. The film starts when the two were children who were filled with the desire to express themselves through dance. Geoffrey grew up dyslexic in Trinidad while Carmen studied Ballet in Los Angeles in the 40s. When they met it was love at first night and the rest was indeed history.
