Films by experimental filmmaker Kevin Everson, with Mr. Everson in attendance for a Q&A to follow the screening
“For more than a decade, working in numerous film and video formats, Everson has presented images of the lives of African Americans—and other people of African heritage, worldwide—through his own distinctive practice of cinematic portraiture, a blend of fiction and documentary that analyzes minute aspects of individual personality by homing in on everyday gestures of labor and leisure. . . . he has carved a place for himself outside both the typical expectations of documentary and the conventions of representational fiction.” —Artforum
