#Atlanta: Cosby Chair Presents a Discussion with Award-Winning Film Director Ava DuVernay Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012


Atlanta (Sept. 17, 2012)
 — Award-winning director Ava DuVernay will break down the business of filmmaking during a discussion on Black to the Future: Era of the Artist Entrepreneur. Presented by 2012-2013 William and Camille Cosby Endowed Professor in the Humanities, Tananarive Due, the evening with the screenwriter and director will feature a clip from DuVernay’s prize-winning film Middle of Nowhere and dialogue centered on her artist-entrepreneur business model “Black Art Rising.”

Emayatzy Corinealdi, the lead actress in Middle of Nowhere, will also appear with DuVernay, who made history when she became the first African-American woman to win Best Director at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. DuVernay is the first of many artists Due will bring to the college throughout the year to highlight the future of black arts.  

“Ava DuVernay is the first guest in my lecture series because she encompasses the full scope of the 21st century artist-entrepreneur and how to take one’s creative work through a business process that leads to success,” said Due. “As a writer, producer, director and distributor, DuVernay is creating a blueprint for filmmakers of tomorrow.”

Scheduled for release in October 2012, Middle of Nowhere, DuVernay’s second feature film is a love story about a woman coping with her husband’s imprisonment. While researching for the film, DuVernay interviewed dozens of women impacted by the mass incarceration epidemic.

[FOOD FOR THOUGHT]

“The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time”

Why Is It... A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping in an advertised bed, washes with an advertised soap, shaves with an advertised razor, sits down and drinks advertised tea or coffee, drives to work in an advertised car and writes with an advertised pen. Then... He refuses to advertise, saying "Advertising doesn't work". But when his business fails, he finally advertises: "Business for Sale" - Anonymous
