During the promo run for her new film A Wrinkle in Time, director Ava DuVernay stopped by talk show The Real and shed some light on her career journey, explaining that after working on the publicist side of the film industry she decided to try her hand at working behind the camera.
“I started in a completely different career,” she said. “I used to publicise and promote and help other film-makers get their films to the public and I was always around film makers and thought, “God, I wish I could make a film.” You can always change. I didn’t pick up a camera until I was 32-years-old, which is older as a film-maker. And so you know, you can always change. The path that you’re on, it doesn’t have to be the path that you end on. You can always evolve.”
