This film is part of the Hispanic Film Festival.

Yuli is the life story of ballet superstar Carlos Acosta, told from three distinct vantage points. As the 11th of 11 children in his low-income family, Yuli (as his father Pedro calls him), demonstrates great physical gifts but rebels against any kind of disciplinary studies, preferring to test his survival skills on Havana’s tough streets. Pedro eventually prevails and enrolls Yuli in the Cuban National Ballet School. Despite his initial hesitation, Yuli is quickly swept up in the world of dance and as a teenager begins to forge his own legend.
