Ava DuVernay Becomes the First WOC to Direct a $100 Million Film.


directher Not the first woman of color capable. Not by a long shot. This should have happened a long time ago with Julie Dash or Euzhan Palcy or Kathleen Collins or Neema Barnette. We need more. And more. And more. More voices. More kinds and creeds and colors of filmmakers. Thanks to Disney for making it so. And saluting my sister filmmakers. Onward for all of us. xo


Ava DuVernay has become the first WOC to direct a feature film with a production budget over $100 million.
