Award-winning director Ava DuVernay directed The Door, a short fashion documentary that highlights the importance of female friendships in a woman’s life. The documentary is the fifth insallment of fashion house Miu Miu’s The Women’s Tales, a series of short films celebrating the modern woman.

The lead actress Gabrielle Union plays a newly divorced woman who is visited by four friends. Each friend chooses an outfit for her to wear on an adventure.

“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.”
