Musician and Actor Q-Tip sat down to speak with the most iconic female director and writers that our generations has ever seen, Miss Ava Duvernay, at the prominent SVA theater for the Tribeca Film Fest last Wednesday. Ava and Q-tip met merely minutes before the interview started but it appeared as if the two were connected or friends because the flow of the interview was so seamless. Ava and Q-tip reminisced on when Ava first connected with her passion of film, her love for hip hop and how she plans to be a director directing with her cane into her older years in life!
Here are my favorite quotes from Ava that resonated with me and that I believe will resonate with many people out there..
“Don’t ask for permission”
“It’s not possible for anyone to stop me from making films it’s not in the realm of possibilities”
“Just get started”
