A Call to Action - Ava DuVernay and AFFRMAva DuVernay’s highly-acclaimed narrative feature debut, I Will Follow takes place during one day in the life of Maye (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) as she packs up the family home upon her aunt’s death. In this contemplative and lushly-shot drama, Maye encounters objects as well as people from her past, triggering memories and emotions that help her move forward. Roger Ebert called the film, “One of the best films I’ve seen about coming to terms with the death of a loved one.” I Will Follow underscores the beauty of the quotidian, highlighting DuVernay’s take on an innovative art cinema that tells black stories.
