Ava DuVernayAva Marie DuVernay (; born August 24, 1972) is an American filmmaker and film distributor. She won the directing award in the U.S. dramatic competition at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival for her second feature film ''Middle of Nowhere'', becoming the first black woman to win the award. For her work on ''Selma'' (2014), DuVernay became the first black woman to be nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Director, and also the first black female director to have her film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. In 2017, she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature for her film ''13th'' (2016).
DuVernay's 2018 fantasy film ''A Wrinkle in Time'', had a production and marketing budget between $150 million and $250 million, making her the first black woman to direct a live-action film with a budget of that size. Although commercially unsuccessful, the film made her the first black American woman to direct a film that earned at least $100 million domestically.
The following year, she created, co-wrote, and directed the Netflix drama miniseries ''When They See Us'', based on the 1989 Central Park jogger case, which has earned critical acclaim. Provided by Wikipedia
