‘Middle of Nowhere’ gets shout out from Oprah!

(a personal message from sharon)

Hey everyone, look at Oprah’s tweet to Ava DuVernay (Best Director -Sundance 2012) about  MIDDLE OF NOWHERE

“@Oprah: . Saw the film MIDDLE OF NOWHERE @middlenowhere. Powerful and Poetic. Opens this wknd in NY, LA, ATL, DC, Philly”


“@Oprah: . @AVAETC saw your movie @MIddleNowhere. Excellent job especially with no money. Bravo to you my sistah.”


This is really wonderful especially since MIDDLE OF NOWHERE opens THIS WEEKEND and is now getting OSCAR buzz. If you are unfamiliar with the film, please watch the Trailer Here

The film maker Ava DuVernay (Twitter@AVAETC ) is not only the first African American woman to win Best Director at Sundance but I dare you not to fall in love with the new star Emayatzy Corinealdi (Twitter @EmayatzyCorinealdi).  This is a grass roots word of mouth campaign so if you post on your Twitter , FB, share with your personal lists and BUY A TICKET this weekend, even if you can’t make it to a theatre, then you can help the film’s box office which will mean the film will open in more locations.


Ava is an exceptional  film maker whose heart is as big as her talent. Check out this profile in last weeks New York Times and a clip from her appearance on Tavis Smiley last night


Thanks in advance for your support of this beautiful work and I am so pleased to be part of it. Visit the official site to see if it’s playing at a theater near you!
