Director: Kevin Jerome Everson

90 mins, US, 2013-2022, Digital

The first screening in Ireland dedicated to the the solo and collaborative work of internationally acclaimed American artist and filmmaker Kevin Jerome Everson, this programme, curated by aemi with thanks to producer Madeleine Molyneaux of Picture Palace Pictures, provides an opportunity to engage with a remarkable and far-reaching filmography that numbers well over two hundred shorts and twelve features. The films here, all shot on 16mm and often on handheld camera, capture the quiet but enduring power of Everson’s open-ended work which is as affecting in its candid depiction of Black American experience as it is when contemplating universal phenomena such as the July 2019 solar eclipse over the skies of coastal Chile.
