Miu Miu Short Film "The Door" Featuring Gabrielle Union, Ava Duvernay & More

The Door, a short film produced by Ava DuVernay, is the fifth of an installment for Miu Miu's Women's Tales. The short film is a celebration of the transformative power of feminine bonds, and a symbolic story of life change.

Starring Gabrielle Union, Alfre Woodard, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Adepero Oduye and singer Goapele, the film follows main character (Gabrielle Union) from a place of deep sadness to a place of power, by way of her loving friends and her immaculate Miu Miu wardrobe. I think this is such a clever way for Miu Miu to highligh their collection in a creative and powerful way.

I also LOVE that Miu Miu chose award-winning film producer Ava Duvernay for this installment. Ava was the first African-American woman to win the Best Director Prize at Sundance Film Festival, for her second feature film, Middle of Nowhere, in 2012.

DuVernay explains, "In the film, characters arrive at the door of a friend in need, bringing something of themselves. 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."

I love everything about this film. From the impactful visuals, to the strong acting (there's no dialogue, just pure emotion!) and of course the gorgeous Miu Miu separates. It's a visual masterpiece.

  1. I do love the fact that the viewers are allowed to derive a profound emotion of our own without needing dialogue to achieve it, and the incorporation of fashion is very clever. Quite the strategic move.
