After its BET broadcast premiere, it was made available on Netflix as a streaming title, but was almost immediately yanked from the service, to the consternation of many of you who didn’t see it when it was in theaters (a limited release), and who, for one reason or another, missed it when it premiered on BET. I recall that news of its availability, streaming on Netflix, was met with much gratification, and an equal amount of distress, when it suddenly disappeared.
Over the months, I received several emails from readers asking me if I could share any info on the film’s home video release, and if you’re one of those who still has yet to see the film, and has wanted to, this news should make you happy!
Announced today, Ava DuVernay’s “Middle of Nowhere” will arrive on DVD, Digital HD and On Demand, on January 13th, 2015, courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment and Code black Films. Not quite next week, but the next 2 months will fly by!
Expected DVD special features include audio commentary with director DuVernay and star Emayatzy Corinealdi.
