33cbxir - Video: The Door by Ava DuVernay (Short Film)

Ava DuVernay, the first African-American woman to win the Best Director Prize at Sundance Film Festival, has released a short video as a prelude to her film The Door.

Featuring the music of Emanative (“Turn Your Lights On”) and Goapele (“For Love”), the 9-minute video reflects on the story of several women (Gabirelle Union, Alfre Woodward, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Adepero Oduye and Goapele) following the powerful path to self-knowledge after walking through The Door.
