Kevin Jerome Everson’s prolific body of film work engages with the history and culture of working-class black Americans and people of African decent. His short gestural films confound simplistic expectations of ethnographic documentary, poetic narrative, or theatrical drama. He stitches archival footage, scripted sequences, vérité documents, and abstract aural and visual minutiae into textured portraits of people, places, economics, politics, and ephemera.
