'Selma' director lending hand to 'Out Of My Hand'

Ava DuVernay and Takeshi Fukunaga discuss their new movie, Out Of My Hands.

- Directors Ava DuVernay and Takeshi Fukunaga have teamed up on the new film, 'Out Of My Hand.' Duvernay-- who is helping to distribute the movie-- says she loves films and wanted to find ways to get it into theaters.

The director behind the Oscar -winning movie, Selma, is working with volunteers all around the country to find places for movies like 'Out Of My Hand.'

"The problem with distribution is that only a few films are able to get into theaters because they are controlled by studios that have other objectives like money," said DuVernay.

'Out Of My Hands' is a story about a plantation worker in Liberia who comes to America where he works as a cab driver.

"It is the immigrant's tale. It's the American Dream and how they achieve it," said DuVernay.

'Out Of My Hand' opens Friday at the IFC Center.
