TRAILER: Ava DuVernay’s “Middle Of Nowhere”

Anticipation grows for Ava DuVernay's next film. And for good reason.

@middlenowhere @avaetc

Here’s the trailer for Ava DuVernay’s upcoming Middle Of Nowhere, the film for which she won Best Director at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.  The film opens on October 12 and tells the story of “a woman’s separation from her incarcerated husband and her journey to maintain her marriage and her identity.”  Further,

Staring into the hollow end of her husband Derek’s eight-year prison sentence, Ruby Sexton fights to support him on the inside and survive her own identity crisis on the outside. Through a chance encounter and a stunning betrayal that shakes her to the core, Ruby is propelled in new and, often frightening, directions of self-discovery.

I understand that those of you attending next week’s BlackStar Film Festival in Philly might get a sneak peek at some clips from the film during Ava’s director’s talk.
