The intensity and emotional weight of Barry Jenkins's Moonlight was highlighted masterfully on screen by the film's score, composed by Academy Award nominee Nicholas Britell. A new collaboration between the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Britell repurposes the compositions from the film to soundtrack an original dance piece. In the clip, directed by Anna Rose Holmer, dancers Jamar Roberts, Christopher Taylor, and Jeremy T. Villas enact a beautiful, blue-lit movement to Brittell's score.
