I HATE THIS
I’m walking down the street bumping into PPl cuz I’m watching this on loop.
Ava DuVernay will become an even bigger force to be reckoned with, and could break the glass ceiling by being the first woman of color to get an Oscar nomination for Best Director.
Middle of Nowhere cost $200,000; Selma cost $20 million. Middle of Nowhere was released by Ava and AFFRM; Selma is being released by Paramount. Big jump. But I’m not worried one bit about this movie not being good. That’s how much I believe in her vision and talent. If you saw the photos on social media from the set and read her posts, then saw these five minutes that Ava literally just took off the editing machine to bring to NY, you will know she is the real deal. The second scene she showed us, of the march to the Selma courthouse to get in the door and sign up to vote, was pretty powerful. And let’s be clear, while this movie is about a man, women will be in the movie. They won’t just be ancillary figures, and that is because of Ava. “I always knew that MLK was badass, but he’s been homogenized to a speech and a statue,” she noted. Ava said that Selma was about making the movie that she wants to see. The fact that she is a 42-year-old African-American woman raised in Compton makes this a whole new game. I want to see the movie she wants to see, too.
