Ava DuVernay will be directing a new multi-part documentary for Netflix on the late great musician Prince, according to several recent reports.
Ava DuVernay tweeted "Prince was a genius, a joy and a jolt to the senses. He was like no other. He shattered preconceived notions, smashed boundaries, and shared his heart through his music. The only way I know how to make this film is with love and great care. I'm honored to do so and grateful."
DuVernay, directed the film that opened the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American history and culture in Washington, D.C., a couple years ago. Ava DuVernay, is also known for directing the film "A Wrinkle In Time" and "Selma" a chronicle on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Having seen both films I believe she will deliver an amazing documentary on Prince. Growing up, I can remember hearing Prince records being played at home from time to time and with that comes great memories. I look forward to seeing this new documentary!
