short fix: Ava DuVernay’s The Door for Miu Miu

A celebration of the transformative power of feminine bonds…

Filmmaking and fashion go hand in hand — nothing sets a time or a place or a mood as quickly and surely as costume, and nothing displays the beauty of a garment like a picture (whether that picture is in motion or not). This is especially true of Ava DuVernay’s The Door, a short film about “the transformative power of feminine bonds, and a symbolic story of life change” that is as gorgeously crafted as the Miu Miu clothes highlighted within.

With an amazing cast of black actresses — Gabrielle Union, Alfre Woodard, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Adepero Oduye and singer-songwriter Goapele — The Door marks a stunning fifth entry in Miu Miu’s The Women’s Tales, a series of compelling short films by female filmmakers exploring “the feminine love affair with Miu Miu through the lens of their diverse sensibilities.”
