Ava DuVernay is continuing her blossoming working relationship with Netflix. Her new documentary, Teach Us All, has been snagged by the streaming service.
ARRAY, the film collective founded DuVernay several years ago, has acquired the education film by first time helmer Sonia Lowman. It will reportedly premiere September 25th. The doc highlights the crisis in American public education, with a historical perspective on the 1957 integration by nine African-American students at the all-white Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas.
In addition to debuting on Netflix, the docu will be shown in Seattle, Philadelphia, Gary and Bloomington, Indiana, Memphis and L.A coinciding with the 60th anniversary of the Little Rock Nine.
