Ava DuVernay's Oscar-nominated documentary 13th traces the history of racism and mass incarceration in America. Because she made the film for Netflix, she had to forego seeing it on the big screen. And she's okay with that. DuVernay tells us why -- following her Oscar nomination for Selma -- she turned down an offer from Marvel to make a doc for Netflix.
