Brooklyn // ‘Middle of Nowhere’ Film Sneak Peek at BAM | Oct. 9
On October 9th, BAM Cafe will host a special sneak peak of Ava DuVernay‘s award-winning fim, Middle of Nowhere. A discussion with the director and others on art, Black cinema, and more will follow.
The film, which won the Directing Award for U.S. Dramatic Film at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival (first ever won by an African American), explores the life of a medical student, Rudy, who is coping with the incarceration of her husband, Derek, as well as outside temptations.
“She drops out of medical school in order to focus on her husband’s well being while he’s incarcerated — leading her on a journey of self-discovery in the process.”
Middle of Nowhere stars Emayatzy Corinealdi (The Young & The Restless), Omari Hardwick (Sparkle/For Colored Girls…), Edwina Findley (Treme), Sharon Lawrence (Rizzoli & Isles), Lorraine Toussaint (Any Day Now) and David Oyelowo (Lincoln/Paperboy).
The film will head to theaters on October 12th with limited release in major markets and roll out from there. Watch a couple of clips below!
