This post was originally intended for Ava's birthday, but I think it's fitting to hear any day. DIVERSE FEMALE WRITERS TOO. If not more importantly than directors. Then fill out the rest of the crew diversely from there.
Happy Birthday to the incredible award-winning filmmaker, television producer, film publicist, and quality activist, Ava DuVernay!
She once said, “I want more girls to be able to see themselves behind the camera creating images we all enjoy, and I want to call attention to the fact that women directors are here all over the world.”
@Ava's is also actively making that happen! For all seven seasons of "Queen Sugar,” DuVernay and her team hired all-female directors.
