Ava DuVernay is on a mission to bring more color to the film world. Her task has expanded tenfold with the rebrand of her company, ARRAY, formerly named AFFRM (African-American Festival Releasing Movement). As part of the film company’s revamp, DuVernay will focus on uplifting and releasing projects made by black, Latino, Asian, Native American, Middle Eastern, and women filmmakers.

Ayanda and the Machine follows a young Johannesburg woman who, after tragedy, tries to find herself in the process of saving her father’s car repair shop and her memory of him. Out of My Hand looks at Cisco, a Liberian rubber plantation worker, who ultimately is driven away from his home and to New York City.

Both films are scheduled to be released in the fall of 2015.
