Middle of Nowhere

Please join us on Saturday September 29 from 6-7PM for a special conversation with filmmaker Ava DuVernay, the first African American woman to be awarded the top directorial prize at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. In 2010, DuVernay also launched the African-American Film Releasing Movement (AFFRM), a groundbreaking distribution company. DuVernay will talk about her work and strategies for creating a voice for independent filmmakers and also screen an exclusive excerpt of her latest film, MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, slated for release on October 12, 2012.  The lovely star of MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, Emayatzy Corenaldi, will also be joining DuVernay to discuss the film and her experience as a Hollywood newcomer.   



Winner of the 2012 Sundance Best Director Award, Ava DuVernay's MIDDLE OF NOWHERE is a portrait of a woman struggling between two worlds and two men in the search for herself. MIDDLE OF NOWHERE will be released with new comer Emayatzy Corinaldi, David Oyelowo (REDTAILS) and Omari Hardwick (SPARKLE) on October 12th in theaters nationwide from AFFRM and Participant Media.
