Ava DuVernay, the Oscar-nominated filmmaker known for her work on 13th, Selma, and A Wrinkle in Time, is now lending her talents to the upcoming Prince documentary set to release on Netflix.
DuVernay revealed that she is "honored" to have the opportunity to bring the documentary to life.
“Prince was a genius and a joy and a jolt to the senses,” DuVernay said in an interview with Deadline on Monday (Oct. 29). “He shattered every preconceived notion, smashed every boundary, shared everything in his heart through his music. The only way I know how to make this film is with love. And with great care. I’m honored to do so and grateful for the opportunity entrusted to me by the estate.”
