Ava DuVernay, Filmmaker, I Will Follow

Ava DuVernay

From Wikipedia In 2008, Ava DuVernay made her feature directorial debut with the documentary, This Is the Life, which won audience awards in Los Angeles, Toronto and Seattle. The film opened theatrically in March 2009, and premiered on Showtime Networks in May 2009. The film was financed, produced, marketed and distributed by DuVernay’s Forward Movement banner. In 2010, DuVernay directed three network music documentaries, including “My Mic Sounds Nice” which explored the history of women in hip hop, “Faith Through The Storm” which is a look at the role that gospel music played in the lives of two black women Katrina survivors, and a two-hour documentary chronicling the Essence Music Festival. All films were broadcast in 2010 on BET and TV One respectively. In 2011, DuVernay’s first narrative feature film, “I Will Follow,” a drama starring Salli Richardson-Whitfield, was released theatrically. The film was an official selection of AFI Fest and Chicago International Film Festivals, and won honors at Pan-African International Film Festival, BronzeLens and Urbanworld. Roger Ebert championed the film, stating “‘I Will Follow’ is one of the best films I’ve seen about coming to terms with the death of loved one. Directed by Ava DuVernay, it isn’t sentimental, it isn’t superficial. It is very deeply true.” The film was released theatrically through AFFRM, the African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement on March 11, 2011 in concert with AMC Independent. Previously, she has written and directed two award-winning shorts, “Compton in C Minor” and “Saturday Night Life,” the latter of which was broadcast by Showtime Television.

Film Distribution

On January 7, 2011 an article entitled “Building An Alliance To Aid Films By Blacks” by Michael Cieply was published in the New York Times about DuVernay’s venture to organize African-American film festivals and orchestrate limited engagement theatrical releases for black independent films. The collective is called the African-American Film Festival Releasing Movementor AFFRM. “I Will Follow” was the first theatrical release of AFFRM on March 11, 2011, making it the first simultaneous national theatrical release powered completely by grassroots means with no formal marketing budget or corporate parent company. “I Will Follow” grossed a per-screen-average of more $11,463, and expanded from five screens in five cities to 22 screens in 15 cities after its first weekend.

David Ornette Cherry

David Ornette Cherry

Taken from David Ornette Cherry grew up in Watts, California. This Watts young man later won the 2003 ASCAP- Chamber Music America Award for adventurous Programming of Contempory Music. He writes, arranges, and improvises music from sunrise to sunset. The pulses and melodies that arise from his jazz, classical, African, world music background, and from playing with some of the great jazz artists of our times, speak about our human experiences through the the language of sound. He listens with an open heart and fresh mind to his collaborators and the world around him in a way that makes his compositions not only music, but a way of life a positive form of energy, and a way to connect. Current work is titled Ensemble for Improvisors. He trains young musicians in world music, theory, and piano. David was born the same year Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry recorded their first album, SOMETHIN ELSE. The ambient music streaming through his childhood was generated by the early collaborations of his dad, Don Cherry, with Coleman and the musicians who visited his parents’ Mariposa Avenue home in Los Angeles. However, it was a wood-chopping accident one summer in Sweden that sealed David’s musical fate as he was confined to music study and later performing with his Dad at the age of sixteen years old.
