MIDDLE OF NOWHERE (FILM at the Erie Art Museum)
November 27  MIDDLE OF NOWHERE (2012)
Written and directed by Ava DuVernay
Sponsored by OB/GYN Associates of Erie

Winner of the Best Director Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, Middle of Nowhere follows Ruby, a bright medical student who sets aside her dreams and suspends her career when her husband is incarcerated. As the committed couple stares into the hollow end of an eight-year prison sentence, Ruby must learn to live another life, one marked by shame and separation. But through a chance encounter and a stunning betrayal that shakes her to her core, this steadfast wife is soon propelled in new and often shocking directions of self-discovery - caught between two worlds and two men in the search for herself.

Admission $5.00. Tickets at the door and online. Doors at 6:00pm. FILM at 7:00pm.

Written and directed by Ava DuVernay. Starring Emayatzy Corinealdi, David Oyelowo, Lorraine Toussaint. Rated R. 97 minutes. English.

Wikipedia Biography: Ava DuVernay is an American filmmaker and distributor. At the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, DuVernay became the first African-American woman to win the Best Director Prize for her second feature film Middle of Nowhere. DuVernay formed The DuVernay Agency, later known as DVA Media + Marketing, in 1999. The award-winning marketing and publicity firm has provided strategy and execution for more than 100 film and television projects by directors such as Steven Spielberg, Clint Eastwood, and Michael Mann.

This year she became the inaugural recipient of the Tribeca Film Institute's Heineken Affinity Award receiving a $20,000 prize and industry support for future projects. In June, DuVernay was invited to both the director's and writer's branches of AMPAS. DuVernay was only the second black woman, following Kasi Lemmons, to be invited to the director's branch.

Ava DuVernay is slated to take over the directing duties of the Martin Luther King Jr feature project "Selma," replacing Lee Daniels and produced by Plan B.
