Talk show titan, Oprah Winfrey, tweeted her support of the Indie film "Middle of Nowhere" to her 14 million followers on Tuesday.
@Oprah: " @AVAETC saw your movie @MIddleNowhere. Excellent job especially with no money. Bravo to you my sistah."
The next day, Oprah gave another shout out calling the film powerful and poetic. You know you're in the game when the queen of all media has your back. The director of the film, Ava DuVernay, is the first African American woman to win "Best Director" at the Sundance Film Festival. "Middle of Nowhere" opens in theaters in New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, D.C, and Philadelphia today.
