Oscar-Nominated Director Ava DuVernay Is Essence Magazine’s March 2017 Cover Star
Oscar-nominated director Ava DuVernay is Essence magazine‘s March 2017 cover star.
DuVernay chats about everything from her Oscar-nominated documentary 13th to diversity and Array, her independent distribution company that spotlights little-known films from women and people of color. DuVernay takes an inclusive approach to film, an approach that’s all her own.
“I don’t have to approach film like a man would, or like anybody else I read about, because it’s personal. So there’s no right way or wrong way. Directors talk about their process but that doesn’t have to be my process,” says DuVernay.
