Ava DuVernay joins forces with Italian fashion house Miu Miu for the fifth installment of their ‘The Women’s Tales’ series. The amazing ten-minute short has no dialogue and stars Gabrielle Union as a character dealing with the depression of her failed marriage. Throughout the film, each of her friends, played by, Alfre Woodard, Adepero Oduye, Emayatzy, and singer Goapele (I’m soooooo in love with her music), show up at her door and attempt to cheer her up with dinner, dancing, or a concert.
The film highlights the gorgeous fashions of Miu Miu, as each style expresses a different side of her character. It’s refreshing to see such a moving and artistic film that represents women of color in such a positive light. According to Ava,
“In the film, characters arrive at the door of a friend in need, bringing something of themselves. Eventually, we witness our heroine ready to walk through the door on her own. The door in the film represents a pathway to who we are.”
