Since the very early stages of the development of this documentary about diversity in cinema, through the experience of black actresses in #France, #Brazil and the #US, I was dreaming of meeting this powerful, inspiring director and activist, who, for sure, is making History : Ava DuVernay.
Saturday was one of these days when you know it’s worth to put tremendous efforts in your project during months or years.
Ava DuVernay came to our house / studio in Los-Angeles, and shared with us her vision of freedom, empowerment and positivity.
We talked about the creativity of the African diaspora and the connections we can make between filmmakers, writers, producers across the continents to tell our stories. She shared with us her love and admiration for actors, with so much generosity... This woman is sorority in action !
I just can’t wait to share this interview with you.
@ava having you standing by me makes me stronger!! Thanks so much 💜
