Ava DuVernay Directs Miu Miu short film THE DOOR

img-miumiu3_143814234419.jpg_category_carousel_thumbDirector Ava DuVernay’s latest offering is a short film with a rich visual landscape and a beautiful cast of black women. Clocking in at just under 10mins, THE DOOR is an example of the harmonious way in which Haute Couture can intersect with black women-centered cinema. The Miu Miu pieces–part of the House of Prada–tell a new narrative as they hug and caress the black female body. Set to a neo-soul soundtrack, DuVernay’s luxe cinematic eye takes us on a journey with Gabrielle Union and her sista friends (Adepero Oduye, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Alfre Woodard, and Goapele) as they comfort Union after a heartbreak.
