TAKE FIVE: For the fifth part of Miu Miu’s Tales short series, the Italian brand tapped award-winning director Ava DuVernay to shoot “The Door,” which features Gabrielle Union, Alfre Woodard, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Adepero Oduye and singer-songwriter Goapele.

The film — a little over nine minutes in length — focuses on an actual door on the modernist house of a main character (Union) who just went through a break-up. Friends come through that door to console her and, with their support, she eventually overcomes her sadness and is able to move on. “The door in the film represents a pathway to who we are,” said DuVernay.

The short will be available for viewing on miumiu.com from Monday.

The series’ first four editions were also directed by women: Zoe Cassavetes, Lucrecia Martel, Giada Colagrande and Massy Tadjedin.
