Ava DuVernay’s upcoming film “Origin” has an educational element she believes young people should experience. To that end, she wants 10,000 16-year-olds the opportunity to do so for free.

DuVernay took the stage at TEDWomen 2023 in Atlanta this weekend to talk about her film and initiative with host Pat Mitchell.

“I need to make sure it [the film] gets to the audience, that it reaches folks, that it’s understood, that it’s interrogated, that it’s shared,” the director said, according to Upworthy.
