Over the past two years, Miu Miu has released a string of short films under its The Women’s Tales series — a project of commissioned works from renowned female directors across the globe, which also artistically highlight some of the brand’s clothing collection. Today the Italian fashion house debuted the fifth installment,”The Door” directed by Ava DuVernay, the first African-American woman to win the Best Director Prize at Sundance Film Festival.
To put it plainly, the film is breathtaking. Thanks to DuVernay sharp cinematic eye and a star-studded cast that includes Gabrielle Union (who plays the lead), Alfre Woodard, Adepero Oduye, Emayatzy Corinealdi and Goapele — we can’t stop watching it. Couple that will the covetable Miu Miu clothes displayed throughout the 9-minute production and you’ve got yourself a cinematic masterpiece.
