Ava DuVernay didn't pick up a camera until the age of 32, which is extraordinary considering the trajectories of many Hollywood directors.It was doubtful that DuVernay could jump from a career in film marketing and publicity so late without even a film degree to back her up.In 13 years, DuVernay has improbably risen to the upper echelons of the entertainment industry, as a filmmaker, producer and agent of change. DuVernay set off to do the impossible – make a big-budget, kids-targeted sci-fi blockbuster with an unknown 13-year-old black actor (Storm Reid, now 14) as the lead.Winfrey, Witherspoon and Kaling marveled at DuVernay's tireless work ethic and attention to detail.
