The Avant/Garde Diaries present a beautiful film about 17-year-old Michaela DePrince, who has made the incredible journey from Sierra Leone, where she was orphaned at three years old and a refugee of the country’s brutal civil war, to pursuing her dream to the top of the New York ballet scene. Watch in awe.
