Diversions: Ava DuVernay's THE DOOR
Still smarting from the Oscars' snub of Selma's writer/director Ava DuVernay? Interested to see what else DuVernay has done? You're in luck!
In 2012, Miu Miu, a brand of Prada shoes and accessories, launched "The Women's Tales," a series of short films directed by up-and-comers like Zoe Cassavetes and Giada Colagrande. The first four films premiered at the Venice International Film Festival; shortly afterwards, they commissioned a fifth short film, this time from Ava DuVernay. Titled "The Door," and starring Gabrielle Union, DuVernay's short film is freely available online - and well worth taking a look at. Check it out below.
