    This is an excellent telling of the the life of a highly gifted dancer, choreographer, and the foremost creator of modern dance in the twentieth century who according to Earnestine Stodelle's telling us that Martha Graham believed it was her calling to be a dancer of technical and ethical excellence of the highest degree to create, teach and show the world clear, inspired dance to all. She refused to compromise her high ethical standards saying, "Sex is sacred. I don't talk about it." She and her company refused to dance for Hitler when she was asked just before WW II by his administration's representative, as well as turning down opportunity for her dance company to perform for apartheid South Africa now- she said during an interview in 1989.
