Details

Kevin Jerome Everson is one of the most prolific filmmakers currently working in America. Based in Charlottesville, Virginia, his overriding concern is with black working class communities, and the social, economic and historical forces underpinning their everyday reality. Appearing at first glance to be observational cinema in form, his work straddles documentary, performance and abstraction, more often than not a creative collaboration with its subject. He is less concerned with narrative than with character and gesture, as well as the act of filming itself.

Having trained as a sculptor, Everson often creates props for his films, drawing a direct connection between his filmmaking and its representations of labour. The eight hour long Park Lanes (2015) invites an audience to commit to a full day’s work in a factory producing bowling alley mechanisms.

Vegan lunch will be provided.
