Ava DuVernay's sophomore drama Middle Of Nowhere made its New York debut over the weekend at the 16th Urbanworld Film Festival, to an undoubtedly enthusiastic sold-out audience.

That should certainly bode well for the film's upcoming commercial theatrical release, starting on October 12, via Participant Media and AFFRM.

The film, which centers on an African American woman struggling to maintain her marriage and identity, after her husband is incarcerated, stars Emayatzy CorinealdiDavid OyelowoOmari Hardwick, Lorraine Touissaint, and Edwina Findley, and was beautifully-shot by award-winning DP Bradford Young.

You've seen the film's trailer, which featured a dose of British singer, songwriter Fink's moody, yet soothing Perfect Darkness. Here's a new clip which stresses the more dramatic aspects of the film's plot.
