The Beauty Of Empowerment Through Unity: The Door by Ava DuVernay [VIDEO]

The-Door-by-Ava-DuVernay “The Door,” by Ava DuVernay, the fifth Miu Miu Women’s Tale, is a celebration of the transforming power of feminine bonds, and a symbolic story of life change

The symbolic center of The Door is the front entrance of the protagonist’s home. As she opens it to greet a friend in the powerfully framed opening scenes, she is shrouded in an oblique sadness. “In the film, characters arrive at the door of a friend in need, bringing something of themselves,” explains director DuVernay. “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.”

Clothing is also a symbol of renewal, each change of costume charting our heroine’s emergence from a chrysalis of sadness. In the final scenes, she takes off her ring, pulls on long, black leather gloves, and walks, transformed by the emotive power of the clothing, through the door.
