March is Women’s History Month, and who better to grace the cover of Essence mag, then Oscar nominated director, Ava DuVernay.
Inside the mag, DuVernay talks about everything from her Oscar-nominated documentary 13th to diversity and Array, her independent distribution company that spotlights little-known films from women and people of color.
DuVernay plays by her own rules, and we love it!
“I don’t have to approach film like a man would, or like anybody else I read about, because it’s personal. So there’s no right way or wrong way. Directors talk about their process but that doesn’t have to be my process.”
