The Door

Let me be the first to say I am lacking serious inspiration right now. It is so hard to find it in everyday life between work and school. Today, while I was supposed to be doing homework, I ran across The Door the fifth in Miu Miu Women's Tales (If you haven't seen the first, you should go and catch up). Directed by Ava DuVernay and staring Gabrielle Union, Alfree Woodard, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Adepero Oduye and Goapele. This wordless film, filled with the amazing music of Goapele, weaves a tale of women and our trials and tribulations, all  while dressed in Miu Miu's amazing design.

It's been a while since I have been captivated and inspired by anything like I was this video.  If you have a few minutes watch and let me know what you think.

Here is the description given by Miu Miu:

The Door, by Ava DuVernay, the fifth Miu Miu Women’s Tale, is a celebration of the transformative power of feminine bonds, and a symbolic story of life change. The symbolic centre 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.
