Ava DuVernay

If you walk into a room, and there is no one that's not like you there, whether it's a woman or a person of color, anyone that's different from you, you should be able to say this is a problem. We need allies in that room to say that video, this room, this company, these ideas, this film, this whatever, this is not right - this is not good enough.

Ava Duvernay

Ava DuVernay is not just a filmmaker, she is a movement. Her work focuses on complex, profound and intelligent characters. Through both her own work and her distribution company ARRAY, DuVernay has championed and propelled stories about women and people of colour, and in just over 10 years since she directed her first feature, she has become one of the major contemporary filmmakers working today.

Take a look at our Close Up season of DuVernay's work running throught June 2018 here.

Despite the quality and impact of Duvernay's work, her ever-growing Hollywood clout and the acclaim her films have earned, like too many women and filmmakers of colour, her work is currently woefully under-represented on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK. We'll stock more of her films as they become available, so watch this space. In the meantime, please contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.
