SOLD OUT - New York Times TimesTalk: Ava DuVernay on A Wrinkle in Time

Thursday, March 8, 2018 at 7:00 pm

John L. Tishman Auditorium, University Center 63 Fifth Avenue, Room U100, New York, NY 10003

All general public and New School community tickets are now sold out. A livestream of the event will be available here.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to spend an evening with Ava DuVernay, Oscar and Golden Globe-nominated director, producer and screenwriter, as she discusses 2018’s most anticipated film, A Wrinkle in Time (in theaters March 9). Based on Madeleine L’Engle’s novel, it is the story of a young girl who learns to bend the rules of time and space on a quest to save her astrophysicist father from captivity in another dimension. 

A formidable force in the fight for female voices and intersectionality in film and beyond, DuVernay was the first African-American woman to be nominated for best director at the Academy Awards, and is the first woman of color to direct a film with a budget of over $100 million. 


Sponsored by the New York Times in collaboration with The New School.
