Ava DuVernay to direct Prince documentary for Netflix


After receiving an Oscar nomination for helming 2016’s prison industrial complex documentary 13th, Ava DuVernay will return to the realm of nonfiction filmmaking to direct a biographical chronicle about late music icon Prince.

The 46-year-old mind behind Selma and A Wrinkle in Time is set to direct the upcoming documentary — which Deadline indicates will be made with cooperation from Prince’s estate — at Netflix.

“Prince was a genius, a joy, and a jolt to the senses. He was like no other. He shattered preconceived notions, smashed boundaries, and shared his heart through his music,” DuVernay tweeted Tuesday in support of the project. “The only way I know how to make this film is with love and great care. I’m honored to do so and grateful.”

Deadline also notes Prince previously reached out to DuVernay about working together before his 2016 death. His estate has reportedly granted DuVernay and her team full access to archived recordings and other unreleased material.

Though the project has yet to be titled, DuVernay and her frequent collaborating editor Spencer Averick (Middle of Nowhere, Selma, 13th) have reportedly visited Prince’s Paisley Park home and studios several times over the last few months in preparation for the film.

KS woman told her birth cert not enough to prove citizenship for passport


FAIRWAY, KS (KCTV) — Born and raised in Kansas, Gwyneth Barbara didn’t expect this kind of hassle.

Barbara had been issued a U.S. passport before, but this time around, Barbara was told her birth certificate wasn’t good enough to prove her citizenship.

“It’s like they’re retroactively declaring that I was never a citizen,” Barbara said.

Barbara was born in a farmhouse in the 1970s in Leavenworth County. She had a birth certificate. Her father went to the courthouse days after she was born to certify her birth -- raised seal and all.

The local passport agency accepted her documentation as satisfactory for her passport application. Days later, she received a letter from the federal division of the U.S. Passport Agency out of Houston, TX, telling her the application was denied and required further documentation.

“I have a birth certificate it was accepted before, why wouldn’t it be accepted again?” Barbara explained.

The letter stated, because her birth certificate was not issued at a institution or hospital, it was not considered proof enough of her citizenship.

She received a letter asking her to submit any number of the listed additional documents.

“Border crossing card or green card for your parents issued prior to your birth? My parents were born in the United States….Early religious records? We don’t have any. Family Bible? They won’t accept a birth certificate but they will accept a family Bible?” Barbara said.

Meantime, she did her best to dig up any of the random documents she was be asking to provide.

“I was absolutely furious ... I went to sleep yelling at the passport agency in my head. I woke up yelling at them in my head,” she said.
