Miu Miu presents "The Door", by Ava DuVernay


Ava DuVernay recently released "The Door", the fifth Miu Miu Women's Tale. This silent and symbolic short depicts the embrace of feminine bonds and life changes surrounding the main character played by Gabrielle Union.  The short also features Alfre Woodard, Adepero Oduye, Emayatzy, and Goapele.

In the film, characters arrive at the door of a friend in need, bringing something of themselves,” explains director DuVernay. “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. ~Ava DuVernay

Clothing are apparent symbols of renewal. Each change of costume tracks the heroine’s emergence from a chrysalis of sadness. In the final scenes, she takes off her ring, pulls on long, black leather gloves, and walks, transformed by the emotive power of the clothing, through the door.
