About the film: Middle of Nowhere follows Ruby (Emayatzy Corinealdi), a bright medical student who sets aside her dreams and suspends her career when her husband (Omari Hardwick) is incarcerated. As the committed couple stares into the hollow end of an eight-year prison sentence, Ruby must learn to live another life, one marked by shame and separation. But through a chance encounter and a stunning betrayal that shakes her to her core, this steadfast wife is soon propelled in new and often shocking directions of self-discovery –– caught between two worlds and two men in the search for herself.
Note: Middle of Nowhere premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, where Director Ava DuVernay made history when she won the Best Director Award. The first African American woman to ever win this award, Ava (a film publicist turned filmmaker) also established a theatrical distribution avenue for independent African American feature films –– AaFFRM Distribution.
