The Door: A Pathway to Ourselves

Fashion company Miu Miu collaborated with female filmmakers to create different narratives about feminine bonds and of course, fashion, in the Women’s Tale. I am drawn to Ava DuVernay’s short film, The Door, because of the symbolic meaning of transformation. The protagonist in the film, played by the beautiful Gabrielle Union, is in the need for renewal after an emotional heartbreak. Ava frames Gabrielle’s transformation through the use of her front door and the help of her friend. “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.”
