Premiere Of Disney's'A Wrinkle In Time- Arrivals

Ryan Coogler published a attractive ode to Ava DuVernay on Friday, the nationwide opening of her Disney film A Wrinkle In Time. In this article, he goes in depth about what makes Ava stand out among her peers, Coogler being one of them. It's why I feel privileged to call her my big sister.

In addition to the quality of her work, Coogler also talks about DuVernay's efforts to improve diversity on her sets, including her decision to hire all-female directors and women in important creative roles for season one of her OWN Network show Queen Sugar, something she plans to continue in season 2. As Disney's second movie of 2018, following several weeks after the powerhouse that is Marvel's Black Panther, AWrinkle of Time has earned mixed reception, but it was unclear how the movie would perform commercially.

Plus, A Wrinkle in Time has already made a name for itself due to the fact that by being hired to direct it, Ava DuVernay is the first woman of color to helm a live action movie with a budget exceeding $100 million. "She is all of these things, but sometimes I forget she is human", Coogler wrote, saying that he found out that she lost her father a few years back when she was filming her documentary 13th.

The 55-year-old State Senator served Iowa Senate District 25 that consists of Butler, Grundy, Hardin, and western Story Counties. Senate Minority Leader Janet Petersen , a Des Moines Democrat, released a statement calling the video a " serious matter ".

"Black Panther" director Ryan Coogler penned an essay for ESPN about his friend DuVernay in honor of her movie's opening.

From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney's "A Wrinkle in Time", an epic adventure based on Madeleine L'Engle's timeless classic that takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light, good versus evil and, ultimately, the triumph of love.

But above all, it's a film about a little black girl with glasses - like my mom, like my wife, like my big sister Ava - who refuses to accept that her dad is lost.
