This time the new video is named “The Door” and it is directed by Ava DuVenray. It is the fifth in series of short films by international female directors and it is a celebration of the transformational power of feminine bonds. The symbolic centre of The Door is the front entrance of the protagonist’s home. Miu Miu with this video uses fashion to explore political ideas, as well as create interesting stories. “Every time a woman makes a film it is a political act, in my view, whether we mean it to be or not”, states DuVernay. In “The Door” stars Gabrielle Union, Alfre Woodard, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Adepero Oduye and singer-songwriter Goapele.
