This short film by Ava DuVernay is pretty damn awesome. I probably watched it 5 times today.

“The film’s main focus is an actual door and the friends who come through it to help Union through a bitter breakup. “Characters arrive at the door of a friend in need, bringing something of themselves,” DuVernay explains. “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.””

The movement, the visuals, and the music are awe inspiring! Processing the film with my photographer’s eye, I found my self gasping. Especially at the image if Gabrielle Union in the foreground of that vibrant wall hanging.

When the film ended, I felt complete but…. I wanted to know how & why she was hurt. A great feeling to walk away with in this case.
